Remains of the Snow

Corno Vado Observatory

Sitting just behind the Corno Grande peak, the observatory runs the CINEOS program (Campo Imperatore Near Earth Object Survey) studying asteroids and meteorites as they enter the earth’s atmosphere via its 108 cm-aperture telescope located in the East dome.  You can visit the observatory if pre-arranged  from Wed-Friday outside of winter.
