Blue Mountain Observatory

Open to Everyone

Come and See...

The Blue Mountain Observatory, located on top of Blue Mountain at an elevation of 6,300 feet, is operated by the University of Montana. The Department of Physics and Astronomy faculty, staff and students offer public open houses during the summer months when the observatory is accessible.

We hope to host in-person events at the Blue Mountain Observatory during the summer of 2021 starting in July, pending approval to host these events in compliance with UM, county and state health guidelines. Please check back for our summer schedule in late spring or early summer for a full list of events.
