When we'd had our fill of downtown and it got truly dark, we headed up to the Lowell Observatory to check out some stars and planets. We happened upon a meteorite as well....
We still had a great time seeing the stars that could be seen by the naked eye. We also really enjoyed overlooking Flagstaff from that high, the view was stunning!
We did find one light post to guide down a path, of course we seized that photo op!
The big claim to fame at Lowell is this is the place where Pluto was discovered and named a planet. This was posted all over their history and their tour. We didn't have the heart to tell them about the reclassification in 2006...which wasn't mentioned anywhere in the museum.
