WHO WE ARE
The Oregon Observatory is a non-profit, educational organization, and it is the largest public education observatory with access to telescopes ranging from 4” to 30” diameter, all made possible by generous donations and support for our educational programs. We are an NASA Affiliate Facility, with special programs in astronomy, rocketry and space exploration. The Oregon Observatory is the #1 attraction in Sunriver and one of the top attractions in Central Oregon by Trip Advisor.
We have embarked on a new expansion project, which includes plans to build another roll-off building housing six new telescopes, and containing new and updated exhibits. Our long-range plan includes a planetarium and new admissions & retail center. Want to learn more? Feel free to contact us for a tour and learn how your support can help us reach our goals.
