Welcome to the Black Rock Observatory. We are a mobile astronomical observatory dedicated to showing people just how amazing the universe is. Started at the Burning Man festival in 2014, we have expanded beyond the borders of Black Rock City to educational institutions and events all along the West Coast.
Take a look at photos from our past events, read about how the observatory domes were designed and constructed, and learn more about the incredible team of eccentric space nerds that built this project and keep it running. Get in touch if you’d like to be part of the team!
