Observatory

Scheduled Times – Level 6

Atop Orlando Science Center sits a domed observatory that, if visited during the right time of year and under the proper conditions, can provide views of planets, stars, and other celestial objects. 

View the four moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and deep sky objects such as galaxies, nebulas, and binary star systems!

View the breathtaking night sky, brilliant sun, and even bustling downtown Orlando area from the powerful, 10-inch lens of the refractor telescope along with several smaller scopes.
