Event Details

HRPO 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION & Preview Party
No admission fee. For all ages.
Binocular recommended.

The idea to bring a public telescope to East Baton Rouge Parish came from a phone call between LSU astrophysicist Greg Guzik and BRAS member Melanie Hair. The Department of Physics and Astronomy at LSU secured the funding for a professional-grade reflector from the Optical Guidance Systems company. BREC (under then-Superintendent Eugene Young) agreed to provided grounds, a building, staff and an operating budget. The rest is history! Join us in a celebration of the past and a look to the future.
