Tellus Science Museum Observatory

The Tellus Observatory gives visitors a view of the night sky through a 20″ telescope perfect for viewing the Moon and planets in our solar system.

The observatory also houses a seismograph used to detect earthquakes all over the world.

Tours of the observatory are available during special events and astronomy workshops.

Learn how to observe the Moon through telescopes and with the naked eye.

With special filters on our solar telescope in the Observatory, you can safely view our nearest star, the Sun. Look for sunspots and loops of hot hydrogen gas called prominences that extend off the disc of the Sun.
