Canyon of the Eagles is proud to present Eagle Eye Observatory to our guests and visitors. Our dark-sky location is considered one of the best astronomic viewing sites in Texas. The elevation of the Eagle Eye Observatory is approximately 1,100 feet or 335 meters above sea level.
The observatory is a sliding-roof design with two independently movable roof sections. Each roof section may be moved to create a variable size, side-viewing slit, or both sections may be moved to open the entire structure to the sky.
Eagle Eye Observatory provides modern telescopes with computer enhanced imaging and astronomical instruments.
The observatory is staffed by qualified astronomers and is regularly open to park visitors during published afternoons, evenings, and special events, weather permitting. When the weather does not permit telescope viewing, EEO provides programs via a large screen television with planetarium software, videos and comprehensive interactive Q/A sessions.
The observatory is open Wednesday through Sunday during the year Please check the website for the specific time and programs that are offered. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the solar system and to see planets up close (relatively speaking). Join us soon!
