George Observatory

Within about an hours drive from Houston, there's a small observatory called George Observatory in Brazos Bend State Park with 3 domed telescopes.  We got a neat tour of the main telescope, where we learned the history of the lens and how they use it to see all the different things in the sky.  Although we weren't able to see many stars because the clouds weren't being very cooperative, we were able to tap our inner deGrasse Tysons to sit back and enjoy the sky.
