Red Buttes

The Red Buttes Observatory is designed to give University of Wyoming students practical, hands-on astronomy experience. The observatory sits atop a small rise on the prairie floor. Wheel ruts, a reminder of an old wagon train, lead the way from the highway to the site. A view of the rust-colored buttes can be seen off to the east, and clumps of grass and sagebrush dot the prairie.  Click here for more information.
