For  Members Only - we have a viewing site South of Owatonna.

Owatonna Clear Dark Sky Report
The club tries having  viewing night each month  during a period close to the New Moon, to provide for a darker sky.   A viewing night may become cancelled when the Dark Sky report projects  a 1/5 to 2/5 seeing condition, which is bad or poor. 

See the Owatonna Clear Dark Sky Report  for viewing conditions related to our viewing night.
