We are still flying!
Finalising a deal a about the location for the future TM Observatory is taking much more time than anticipated (or hoped for…). Nevertheless, the Management Team is in ongoing discussions with both private landholders and the council to find a solution for this exciting project. Locations are being considered, but it is obvious that this is not easy given the diversity of requirements for a suitable location. Not only does it need to fit existing zoning and building limitations, but also access and other infrastructure needs have to be addressed. On top of that a location needs to be dark enough, away from too much light pollution.
The good news is that the support of the community is overwhelming, not only verbally, but also in the fund raising.
We are convinced that the project will be a success as soon as a location has been secured. We are all working very hard, and in very positive and optimistic mood, to realize this dream.
