At Lowell Observatory, history and science come together! Founded in 1894, the observatory is the home of Pluto and has been a fixture in astronomical research for more than a century. Today, guided tours of the historic campus give visitors a chance to peer through the Clark refracting telescope to view the cosmos, and walk the famous path Clyde Tombaugh took the night he discovered the ninth planet. Interactive exhibits for people of all ages make Lowell a family friendly venue that allows all to explore the history of the universe and modern science research. Daily safe viewing of the sun and nightly stargazing are offered during favorable weather. One of the oldest observatories in the United States, Lowell is a registered National Historic Landmark, and was named one of “The World’s 100 Most Important Places” by TIME magazine. Lowell Observatory is a must-see, located just minutes from downtown Flagstaff. Find us on Facebook, or visit our website lowell.edu for more information.
