Thomas G. Cupillari ’60 Observatory

Thomas G. Cupillari Observatory, located just eight miles northeast of the Keystone College, LaPlume campus, was opened in 1973 and serves as instruction for the Keystone College students, and sky observation of the local community. Public lectures and viewing opportunities are offered during various sessions throughout the year. These programs allow the public to directly view the wonders of the universe through the observatory’s historical telescope. Rated on a scale of zero to 10, zero representing perfection, the 9-1/2 inch glass in Keystone’s telescope scores about a two, to enable perfect star gazing on a clear night.
