Construction & destruction underway on August 1, 2018

It’s hard to look back at the demolition of the [original] additions to the observatory and remember the vision we had on August 1st 2018 as to what the observatory was to become.  It’s been a journey none of us would have wanted to miss.

When this photo was taken now seems like a distant memory but it was just last fall.  Open up  [first image] to view roughly the same area as it appears today.  It’s almost unbelievable.
