Snow King Observatory and Planetarium facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Snow King Observatory and Planetarium is a planned astronomy facility on US Forest Service property at the 7,808-foot (2,380 m) summit of Snow King Mountain in Jackson, Wyoming. In January 2020, Bridger–Teton National Forest administrators released a draft environmental impact statement regarding the proposed facility. A Nevada–Wyoming amateur astronomer, Samuel Singer, created the nonprofit Wyoming Stargazing in 2014 to foster the project.

The planetarium would be co-housed with a restaurant, ski patrol, and other amenities in a 25,000-square-foot (2,300 m2) building at the summit. The observatory would be a separate 500-square-foot (46 m2) building.
