Bradley Observatory

Located at Agnes Scott College, Bradley Observatory is home to a 30-inch Lewis H. Beck telescope and the 70-seat Delafield Planetarium. Named for William C. and Sarah Hall Bradley, the observatory is a great place for groups to learn about astronomy. From September to April, groups can take a tour of the observatory and enjoy a planetarium show. Tours conducted by physics faculty and college students include a trip out to the observing plaza for viewing, a lesson on how the telescope works, and time for questions. Group minimum is 20 people and the maximum is 50.
