A love for the night sky combined with a passion for teaching, brought two former science museum employees together to create Branched Oak Observatory. Now, a sprawling facility run by a half dozen professional educators and astronomy enthusiasts, Branched Oak Observatory opens its doors and skies to the greater Lincoln community.
With your help, Branched Oak Observatory can become the premier destination for astronomy education in the state. Your donation will allow us to provide learning opportunities for Nebraska K-12 students and encourage the next generation of astronomers, scientists, and engineers.
Thank you so much for your consideration. Be sure to watch our website and Facebook page for our next general public event. We look forward to showing you the beauty of the night sky through a variety of astronomical binoculars and telescopes.
