Taurus Hill Observatory’s 20th anniversary year

Posted by & filed under , , .

In 2024, it will be exactly 20 years since Taurus Hill Observatory began its full-scale operations.

Taurus Hill Observatory got a new rough and shiny dome just before Christmas 2003, and after the turn of the year, the main telescope, the 12-inch Meade still serving Kassiopeia, was installed in the tower. This jubilee year is celebrated throughout the current year, with the celebrations culminating in the annual summer’s “Sun Day” (Aurinkopäivä in Finnish), where the past 20 years are remembered. The association’s member magazine, Ad Astra, as well as our website, note this anniversary with a special logo (picture below).
