The Haggart Observatory at CCC

Located at Clackamas Community College’s Environmental Learning Center on the Oregon City campus, the centerpiece of the Haggart Observatory is a 24" reflector telescope. For the past several years, CCC has had a partnership agreement with the Rose City Astronomers (RCA), a local amateur astronomy club, which provided for the maintenance of the observatory and the opportunity to open it for public viewings. CCC is grateful to the RCA for their stewardship of this incredible resource!

During the recent restoration of the ELC, the college conducted a risk assessment of the observatory and discovered the need for some safety-related improvements. While we continue working through the process of evaluating and remedying the situation, there is no definitive timeline for opening the observatory for public viewings. We apologize for any inconvenience, and wish you happy stargazing from a different location!
