Lowell Observatory Logo

Lowell Observatory was founded in 1894 by Percival Lowell. Since then, Lowell astronomers have discovered Pluto, collected the first evidence of the expanding universe, and measured the motions and properties of stars, among many other achievements. Today we continue to do research in all areas of astronomy and share our discoveries through public outreach, STEM education, and scholarly publications.
