Owl Hollow (or Owl Flats)

This is a nice observing site not quite as far as the Keota site (but not quite as dark either).  It is on public land and there could be other non-astronomy folks there but it generally hasn't been a problem.


From the I-25 / Hwy 14 interchange in Fort Collins, head EAST on HWY 14 for 33 miles.  Turn left on Weld County Road 69.   The spot is on the east side of WCR 69 - on service road 609 - about 3.6 miles north of WCR 96 (the first major crossroad as you head north on WCR 69). If you reach Weld County Road 104, you’ve gone about ΒΌ mile too far north.

GPS coordinates are:

40 44.1058'N

104 24.4401W
