Welcome to the Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory
In the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, Tupper Lake, NY provides one of the best destinations for stargazing in the East. The combination of low-light pollution, low humidity and high altitude provide nearly ideal conditions for night sky viewing. It is here where the Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory (formerly the Adirondack Public Observatory) has been laying its roots into the dark side of a hill on Big Wolf Road.
This relatively new and growing facility strives to "provide quality educational experiences for people of all ages through the science, technology, and history of astronomy." Offering a variety of unique public stargazing opportunities, educational lectures, family-friendly events, and more, the Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory is exposing the night sky in a whole new dimension. Check out our schedule of events and viewing schedule and then come discover the night sky with us.
Support our campaign! An anonymous donor has generously offered a challenge grant of $20,000 to help kick off the Adirondack Sky Center campaign to raise funds for its planned AstroScience Center museum and planetarium in Tupper Lake, NY! Help us to meet this goal and meet the need for astronomy STEM education in Northern New York. All gifts, no matter what size, will help.
