Northmoor Observatory


Northmoor Observatory is located within the city of Peoria at Donovan Park (formerly Leo Donovan Golf Course), and houses a 9 inch refractor telescope.

Northmoor Observatory provides excellent views of stars, planets, and our moon. It was the first observatory in Illinois to offer public viewing, and the PAS continues to provide this service to the community today.  The observatory is open to the public every cloudless Saturday night from the beginning of May through the end of October. You will find volunteers on hand to aid you in your discovery of the cosmos, from sunset until midnight.
