Hello, from Whipple Fan!

Just wanted to let all know, I own in the Greens & received from, Pima County, it is rezoning the GV Pecan Orchard, to build homes, and phase out the orchards, below the Whipple Observatory, from the tiny drawings we were sent, won't this effect the viewing for Whipple & other star gazers? has any one else received the information?

First, welcome to the forums.

That sounds like bad news indeed. With houses or businesses comes lots of lighting and light pollution so if you currently have dark skies, enjoy it while it lasts.
