Crosby Observatory

Peer through the powerful 10-inch lens of the refractor telescope to view the planets and stars. This summer you may be able to see Jupiter, Mars, or even Saturn! This astronomical experience doesn’t happen every day but it may be possible to view these planets during OSC's extended hours. This one-of-a-kind custom-built telescope, along with several smaller scopes, are available at select times for solar and night sky viewing.
