Eyes on the Skies, Sunriver, Oregon

Sunriver is a vast resort complex and community in Central Oregon. It offers every experience a vacationer could desire from world-class golf to a state-of-the art aquatic center and more. One such experience is the Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory (SNCO), which focuses on inspiring present and future generations to cherish and understand the natural world around them through hands-on learning and daily programming.  

No trip to the SNCO is complete without viewing the night sky at the Oregon Observatory, the largest of its kind in the country. With over a dozen telescopes, it makes for a holistic viewing in one of Oregon’s two designated Dark Sky Places.  

For those who turn in early, weekly Planetarium shows are also available.
