Interested in a luxurious property under dark skies in southwestern New Mexico? Steve Cullen, formerly the president of LightBuckets, is selling his house, ranch, and observatory complex near Rodeo, New Mexico. It consists of 183 acres, a 5,500-square-foot house, a 2,640-square-foot workshop and garage, a professional-grade observatory, and a 2,244-square-foot barn. All this under the amazingly dark skies of this area, which are as good as any I’ve seen. And the asking price? A cool $1,095,000.

Steve and his wife Cindy are planning on making a significant, five-figure donation to the Astronomy Foundation when the property sells. So as a buyer, you can get a great house, a fantastic observatory and observing location, and provide momentum for the group that is bringing astronomy to the people all at once.
