The Stamford Observatory is a research facility used by members of the Fairfield County Astronomical Society. The Observatory is open to the public every Friday night at 8:00pm-10:00pm, weather permitting. Visitors of all ages can enjoy viewing the moon, planets and deep space objects through our 22-inch research telescope. There's something fun to do here every month! Check our calendar for upcoming special events and dates.

Our lecture room can accomodate up to sixty people and we can supply tables and chairs. Anything else must be brought in by the renter. Please contact us for more information and to schedule your rental date.
