Observatory

The South Florida Science Center & Aquarium's Newly Upgraded Observatory is coming soon!

     

 

Guests will be able to join us for solar viewing every Saturday and for night sky viewing on the last Friday of every month during Nights at the Museum. Please stay tuned to our website for opening dates or call (561) 832-1988.

The primary telescope in the observatory was a new Meade LX600.  It is a go to scope, meaning that an onboard computer and GPS allows the scope to scan the skies and give the viewer the opportunity to view thousands of objects that would not normally be seen with the naked eye. Stay tuned for announcements on our latest telescope install!

Funding for this project was provided by the Marmot Foundation.
