Schoonover Observatory – Lima Astronomy Society

The Schoonover Observatory is located in Schoonover Park, Lima, Ohio. The observatory became a reality in 1964 through the vision of the Lima Astronomical Society, the philanthropy of the Thomas R. Schoonover family, and the cooperation of the city of Lima. Club members ground the optics and constructed a 12.5-inch Newtonian Cassegrain telescope. Schoonover Observatory is open the first Friday of each month at 8:00 PM for a meeting and presentation with observing possibly following, weather permitting. The Observatory is open to the public for viewing every Friday night after dark during the summer months, weather permitting.
