To request a date for your group to visit the observatory, follow the 3 simple steps below. Or, use our calendar to find special events at LTO.
STEP 1: Find an open day and time in the calendar below. A white space indicates an open date. Clicking on an open date on the calendar has no effect, it is for viewing purposes only. Use navigation arrows < or > to change months as needed. The observatory is closed annually during July for maintenance and construction projects, and for the safety of our visitors we cannot schedule groups during this time period. After finding an available time and date, continue to steps 2 and 3 below the calendar.
Please allow 2 weeks lead time for your requested date. LTO needs this time to contact our volunteers to staff your event.
NOTE: Starting in Mid-August 2021, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic uncertainty, we will allow only visitors from one family, who are all vaccinated, to request a visit, and LTO can cancel the visit at any time, if circumstances change.
