Free Observatory Passes 

Folks eager to check out the view from the new Penobscot Narrows Observatory lined up bright and early Saturday morning for free tickets.

Chambers of Commerce in six locations distributed a thousand free passes this morning for the Observatory’s opening weekend, may 19th and 20th.

Each pass is good for a specific 15-minute period on either Saturday or Sunday.

Officials with the Department of Transportation say they expect the free passes will result in a sold out weekend, so if you haven’t gotten a pass, you shouldn’t expect access to the Observatory on opening weekend.

Those who do have passes will be making history when they get to witness the spectacular view…on a clear day, you’ll be able to see 100 miles.
