The Community Observatory is your window to the night sky! See the stars through the 17-inch and 14-inch reflecting telescopes on a clear, dark night. Follow planets or the moon as they travel across the sky. Bring the whole family for an unforgettable experience in the foothills of El Dorado County.
Sorry, no pets allowed

New $2 Parking Fee will apply as of October 23, 2017.  Los Rios Community College District Board of Trustees have decided to implement 24/7 parking enforcement and charge observatory visitors for use of their parking lot.
We announce closures 60-minutes before the scheduled event.   Check the calendar before you head out to the observatory.
