"Clocking the Stars"

Settled on the hilly lawns of a naval fort in upper northwest Washington, the Observatory measures the times and positions of the stars. Visitors may watch a short movie and view the precision clocks and high-powered telescope. Though it is not generally open to the public, visitors can catch a glimpse of its fine Victorian exterior. Tours are held on select days. Up to 90 people are admitted per tour and prior reservations need to be made through their website.
