Lowell Observatory is closing its doors after tonight until further notice due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The observatory hosts over 100-thousand visitors a year, and with the travel season getting ready to ramp up officials deemed it in their best interest to close until further notice to help slow the spread of the virus. Officials say scientists will still do work on Mars Hill and more content will be added to the observatory’s website. There’s no timeframe on when the observatory will reopen to the public.
