The Carlton Observatory Project

We are on a mission to build a professional observatory in Carlton, Oregon! The exact location is in the works, but thanks to the overwhelming support of the Carlton community, we are well on our way!

How To Support Us:

The Carlton Observatory will be funded by individual donations and grants. You can donate by mailing us a check to  PO Box 241 Carlton OR 97111, by attending one of our upcoming Events, or by purchasing a star online! We also welcome all passionate volunteers and board members, as well as sponsorship from businesses.
