Lowell Observatory’s history began in the late 19th century when Percival Lowell founded the observatory to study Mars. It was located in Flagstaff, Arizona, which has a dry climate perfect for observing the skies (no humidity or cloud cover).

Today, Lowell Observatory is still very much involved in space exploration. However, it also shares its expertise through public outreach and education programs that are designed to get more people interested in science! The gift shop offers all sorts of fun astronomy-related items like posters and hats as well as pens decorated with illustrations of planets and stars. You can also purchase tickets for their planetarium shows online ahead of time if you’re traveling from out of town—they have live performances every day except Sunday at 4 PM ($13 per person). If that doesn’t sound like enough activity for one day then check out the museum next door too! It’s open Monday through Saturday from 10 AM until 5 PM ($7 adults/$5 children).

Flagstaff, Arizona

Flagstaff is a city in northern Arizona. It’s the largest city in northern Arizona, with a population of about 70,000. It is located in Coconino County and sits at an elevation of 7,000 feet (2134m). Flagstaff is located just 60 miles south of the Grand Canyon National Park. This makes it a convenient place for tourists who want to explore both places during their trip to Arizona

Flagstaff was founded by William “Billy” Black on October 26th, 1876 as a trading post for the local Native Americans. The name Flagstaff comes from this time when William Black raised a flag to mark where he had found water during his journey through what is now called Arizona today

In 1882 Northern Pacific Railroad began construction of its line through central Arizona connecting their mainline at Winslow across what was then Indian Territory into New Mexico Territory where they would meet Santa Fe Railway’s mainline at Santa Fe

This meant Flagstaff would become one endpoint on this new rail link which would be completed in 1889 after two years of work building through difficult terrain

In Flagstaff, AZ there is a wonderful museum that should be on your bucket list if you are a space enthusiast. The Lowell Observatory was founded in 1894 by Percival Lowell and is located in Flagstaff, Arizona. This facility houses many wonderful exhibits to see including the historic Clark telescope which was built in 1896 and used by Clyde Tombaugh to discover Pluto in 1930. It also houses other telescopes, one of which is used to search for planets outside our solar system (exoplanets). There are also working laboratories at this facility currently being used by scientists who work there. You can also learn about the history of the observatory through displays that have been placed throughout the museum. There is also a gift shop where you can purchase souvenirs to remember your visit. The planetarium show was very well done and informative as well as entertaining for children with plenty of opportunity for questions from visitors. These shows are held multiple times a day so it’s easy to fit them into your schedule if you want to see them. Outside of the museum, there are large rocks and boulders that you can climb on if you wish or take pictures with for fun afterward. All in all, I would recommend anyone visiting Flagstaff to check out this place because it’s a great way to spend an afternoon and gain some knowledge about our universe and how it works while doing it!
