Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff, AZ

Monday we went to the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff. We were able to get in free with our pass from the Air and Space museum in Alabama. It was very interesting. We had a tour of the observatory that was built in 1894. It is amazing. We returned after dark to view a double star through the old telescope. We also saw Saturn through another telescope that was set up outside.

In between our trips to the observatory we drove down to Sedona. Although it is pretty, I really wasn't all that impressed. It is too touristy for me.
