Bradley Observatory

The stars and the heavens, closer to earth. 

The Bradley Observatory (84° 17' 38.98" W, 33° 45' 54.84" N) brings the stars to the Atlanta area. The astronomical teaching and research facility is located on the Agnes Scott College campus in Decatur, Georgia. The observatory, named in honor of William C. and Sarah Hall Bradley, contains the 70-seat Delafield Planetarium and a 100-seat capacity lecture hall.

The building also contains a library/seminar room, two faculty offices, a darkroom, a student computer lab and an observing plaza for astronomical viewing. The large dome atop the observatory houses the 30-inch Lewis H. Beck telescope.
