5-Star Gazing Primland

Year-Round

Primland’s altitude and the clarity of our night skies combine to offer an extraordinary opportunity to study stars, planets, and other celestial objects. Our Observatory is equipped with a Celestron CGE Pro 1400 telescope, which provides glimpses into the heavens that you simply cannot see anywhere else. The Observatory is an incredible experience year-round, but below are a few star-studded events worth visiting for this year.
