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.

Join us for our Spring Break Investigating the Stars Family Workshop!

Come enjoy the wonders of the night sky through our 20″ telescope in the Observatory! Possible sights include Mars, double star Gamma Leo, star cluster M3, and galaxy M51.

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!

Come observe the Sun at Tellus! 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.

Join us for stargazing in the Observatory 1 – 11 PM at National Astronomy Day!
