Hammocks for Astronomical Observatories

There are over 600 astronomical observatories in the world.

600 places where you can observe nebular gas clouds and ponder the universe.  Learn a little and geek out with friends.  Observatories are great places to enjoy champagne and good company, in my experience.  I want to equip these wonders of science and human accomplishment with something which will make future visits all the more enjoyable:  hammocks.

What better way to look at the sky than to sway in the breeze and simply open your eyes.  The world is beautiful.  Enjoy it.  In a hammock.   I am working through Huntsville Ideas, a 501(c)(3) to make side project happen.   Contact me with questions or to get involved.

Indulge ideas.  You might just come up with a new nonprofit venture that aims to make science a little cozier.

  1. Great idea! I am both an avid stargazer and hammock hanger. You are obviously wanting hammocks with self-supporting frames. My hammocks typically hang between two trees and the heavens aren’t very visible. Let me know what I can do to help this idea to get off the ground; that’s what hammocks do too.

  2. Hey Amy! I’ll be island hopping in Hawaii this summer and would love to help set up hammocks in Hawaii’s 9 astronomical observatories! Let me know how I can help!
