Snow King Observatory
Snow King Mountain Observatory was a vision by Astronomer Dr. Samuel Singer, in 2014. Dr. Singer met Jakub Galczynski in 2015. Galczynski designed the initial observatory to be promoted to potential project to stakeholders.
Before Snow King Observatory could be considered, a gondola to the summit had to be constructed. The gondola was finished in the Winter of 21′. Shortly after Galczynski started further developing the Snow King Observatory. During this time a planetarium theater and rooftop stargazing was added to the design.
