“The Deer Lick Group, LLC, a group of amateur astronomers from Atlanta, has purchased a 96-acre plot of land located in one of the darkest regions of Georgia. There is little to no development going on in the area, and the skies are very dark. We have lots of cleared space, so the horizons are wide open. This won’t be just an empty plot of land. We are developing it for our needs, we are building a distinctive dark sky community Want to build a roll-off-roof or dome observatory? Perhaps just a scope storage shed and a cement pad of your own? We will be offering long-term leased plots, typically 50’x50′, for exactly this purpose. We have access to observatory plans, and can help you design and build your observatory. Pricing starts at $100/month.”
