|Space Grant funding has allowed for the refurbishment of the Blue Mountain Observatory at the University of Montana. This observatory is the only research observatory in the state. Space Grant funding has allowed the purchase of a modern CCD camera for the observatory, a STARLAB planetarium for educational use at the University and in schools in surrounding communities, and, most recently, a dedicated four-wheel drive vehicle for access to the observatory.|
