Escape to the Stars: Eagle Eye Observatory in Burnet, Texas

Canyon of the Eagles offers world-class adventure no matter where your imagination takes you. We're happy to offer our guests free access to Eagle Eye Observatory, operated by our friends at the Austin Astronomical Society.

Escape to the stars with the help of Eagle Eye's high-tech telescopes. The 16-inch Ealing "Educator" Cassegrain Telescope offers research-quality views of the moon and distant stars, while the 12.5-inch Newtonian telescope offers a vibrant eye on the night sky.

Whichever you use, there's no limit to what you can discover:

  • Our moon
  • The planets
  • Gas cloud nebulae
  • Distant Star Clusters
  • Galaxies
  • Comets
  • Spy Satellites
  • New Stars and Planets

The Observatory is operated several nights a week, weather permitting, and is always complimentary to our resort guests.
