Rainwater Observatory – French Camp, MS


Rainwater Observatory hosts hundreds of people each year and features 17 telescops, a planetarium, model solar system, and space art exhibit.

Established in 1985, Rainwater Observatory is now a premier, nationally known center for teaching astronomy and observing the heavens. Groups, individuals, schools, and amateur astronomers from across the nation come to programs and events. Teacher workshops are hosted for earning CEU’s. The annual Mid-south Stargaze in April brings those interested in the heavenly orbs from Central and South America as well as the good ole’ USA.
