Crosby Observatory

Peer through the powerful 10-inch lens of the refractor telescope to view the planets and stars. This summer you may be able to see Jupiter, Mars, or even Saturn! This astronomical experience doesn’t happen every day but it may be possible to view these planets during OSC's extended hours. This one-of-a-kind custom-built telescope, along with several smaller scopes, are available at select times for solar and night sky viewing.

OSC's latest exhibit features an array of hands-on, interactive experiences that’ll allow visitors to explore the forces of gravity, electricity, and Newton’s Laws in this challenging exhibit. Build and test your own creations such as Air Rockets and Air Cars. Take on the Coaster Challenge and learn about roller coaster engineering. This exhibit is open during extended hours when fewer people are present, offering an intimate experience to build, test and rebuild your creations!

    I know it’s not the time of year yet.. But Are you all still doing the Lazer light shows ??? I can’t find anything on the current listings for this year on lazer light shows

    • Kristen Manieri

      Hi David, Orlando Science Center doesn’t start their laser shows until the summer and the EFSC Planetarium and Observatory in Cocoa Campus is temporarily closed because of damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

    It is summer 2019 and still no sign of any laser light shows. I’ve looked all over the website with no luck finding any kind of schedule or announcement other than the promises on this page.

      Hi Richard! This post is from 2016 so it is no longer relevant. We haven’t heard any news about laser light shows for this year yet. Thanks!
