Geocache Description:


Welcome to Eastend, Saskatchewan. A place that is known for it's dinosaurs (Scotty the T-rex) and rugged badlands terrain. But I'll bet you didn't know it was also a good place to sit out and observe the stars! The altitude at the location is 3350 ft above sea level.

Eastend has one of the few observatories open to the public in western Canada. The Wilkinson Memorial Observatory was founded by Jack Wilkinson, a blacksmith who built his own telescopes and hand-ground his own lenses. When he died in 1953, the community took over maintenance of the observatory, which is located on top of one of the valley hills and features an 11-inch (28-cm) Celestron telescope. - David McLennan, The Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan.

The observatory is open again in 2009 by arrangements that can be made at the musem or by calling Sig Giverhaug at 295-3565. Check out this 2-page article on the Observatory as well:
