Telescope Still Exposed, But Damage Not as Bad as First Thought

The early word is that it could have been worse. The steel and aluminum dome atop the Mount Evans observatory was destroyed by high winds over the winter. But damage to the telescope inside may not be as bad as first thought.

KUNC’s Brian Larson visited the observatory with University of Denver Astronomy professor Robert Stencel back in 2008. He reached him by phone for an update.

We first updated this story on May 22nd.
