Reimers Observatory, a public facility operated by Travis County Parks. Our observatory is located at Reimers Ranch Park, approximately 25 miles southwest of Austin, Texas. We offer public astronomy programs suitable for people of all ages. At Reimers Ranch Park, you have the opportunity to see a star-filled sky without needing to drive to a remote site far from home. Come and learn about the universe while viewing it with your own eyes. We operate two large telescopes, one 25-inches in diameter and another 15-inches in diameter. Observatory staff will discuss the science behind what we see, as well as tell some of the ancient stories of star lore. We use laser pointers to show you the constellations, planets, points of interest in the Milky Way, and even satellites passing overhead. Each program lasts about two hours.
Reservations are required!
