Description Of This Tour

Jack Newton took his first astrophotograph of the planet Saturn when he was 13 years old and from there his passion for all things celestial, well… exploded! Join acclaimed amatuer astronomer, pioneer of “cold camera” astrophotography, educator and writer Jack Newton, along with his wife Alice, in an afternoon of daytime sky viewing at their renowned Osoyoos observatory. Perched 1,600 feet above the valley floor, the observatory is equipped with a 16-foot dome and computer-controlled telescope that offers exquisite viewing of daytime objects including, with the help of H-alpha filters, the sun! Located 10km east of Osoyoos on Highway 3 – look for the white house with the white dome.

Please note: The site has many stairs and is not wheelchair accessible.
