"Keeping Teller County In The Dark."

The Las Brisas Observatory (LBO) is located in a dark protected area of the old spanish Las Brisas Ranch (Las Brisas means "The Breezes"). It is 11 miles west of Pikes Peak, Colorado, at an elevation of 8500 feet. The dark skies and high elevation gives us some of the most spectacular views of the heavens, however, the encroaching city lights and yard lights continue to degrade the view we have of our universe.

LBO was built in 1979 and has been in continuous operation since then. The observatory is equipped with a 14 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and an 8 inch Schmidt camera.

LBO is dedicated to the glory of GOD: "The firmament shows HIS handiwork", Psalm 19:1. "GOD said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens... let them be for signs...", Genesis 1:14. The signs of creation are still there today, look up at night, wise men still seek HIM. Romans 1:20-21 in the Bible, states that anyone who ignores the testimony of creation does so "without excuse" and when people turn away from GOD, their understanding is darkened. HIS love is written all across the sky; as brilliantly the stars all testify.
