UNG Observatory gets domes

The University of North Georgia has reached what it says is a major construction milestone with the completion of work on domes that will shelter two new telescopes at North Georgia Astronomical Observatory.

"This is a major milestone because the facility looks and feels like a professional observatory," said Adam Strzemienski, assistant director of facilities for capital planning and sustainability. "This building will accomplish the instructional, research and community education goals of the project."

The installation indicated construction on the new state-of-the-art facility is near an end. The project is set to be complete in late July .
