Freeport, Illinois — It isn’t very often you get to interview someone responsible for so many great childhood memories of growing up with an Observatory in your back yard.
From the days of the JETS Observatory to what is today the Doug Firebaugh Observatory, here is an interview with Doug Firebaugh of the Doug Firebaugh Observatory, talking with us about the Observatory, its features today, and his contribution to what eventually became a truly wonderful asset to the city of Freeport.
We have always loved this place.
The Observatory will be having their Annual Open House on Saturday, April 28 from 11 AM – 4 PM. Make sure you stop out. 2892 W Stephenson St, Freeport.
