A Great opportunity for a astronomy site
John Gilkison and Dave Oesper viewed 140 acres of prime dark sky astronomy land on January 6, 2013 offered for sale by the Windmill Ranch in northern Lincoln County. The property was showed to Dave and John by Tom Jacob representing United Country Realty.
The property is for sale for $55,000 and financing is available. The NPO is looking for a venture pardner to go in 50/50 on purchasing this land. Essentially we would split the land into a 70 acre parcel for each entity. Electricity is available at the site. Access is from the north end of the property on a maintained county road.
Contact NPO President John Gilkison, PO Box 19, Radium Springs 88054 if you are interested in more information on potentially owning prime dark sky astronomically purposed land in Southern New Mexico for your future astronomical observatory, and or your home site.

New NPO Calendar
The following links are here to allow you to download three month segments of the NPO Calendar. Keep checking back for updated links.
It can be printed using 8.5x14 inch paper for each page. At the top you need to find the center and punch a hole for hanging the calendar. I would recommend tape on the back side of the hole for reenforcement. We are asking for a donation of one dollar a page, or for ten dollars for the whole year. The donation is voluntary of course. I think our members will like the calendar.
