Viewing Opportunities Elsewhere in Central Oregon

You don't have to drive all the way to Sunriver to peer through our telescopes. During the summer season you can find us looking at the Sun in a variety of places around Central Oregon. You can also find representatives from the Observatory at various star parties around the Northwest. We make the yearly trek to Golden State Star Party, Oregon Star Party, Table Mountain Star Party, Brothers Star Party, and many others. Come find us for astronomy equipment, or just say hello!

Astronomer-on-the-Go is a staff member with telescopes that will come to you and your special event!

Along with our kids classes for building and launching rockets, the Observatory also takes part in a number of rocket launch events. The Oregon Observatory is the largest retail outlet for low to high powered rocketry supplies in the Northwest. Be sure to look for us at Oregon Rocketry public launches and other regional launches.
