Located in Indio, California, the Gargan Optics Observatory is a great gathering place for those that love science. If your child wants to have their next birthday party under the stars or you are searching for a truly unique place to gather with friends, this star-struck attraction is ideal. When you host a party or take a visit to an observatory, you create a truly unique experience that is also highly educational.
The Gargan Optics Observatory was founded and is currently operated by Willian D. Gargan IV. A longtime astronomer with decades of experience in this scientific field, Gargan provides a breathtaking and knowledgeable tour of the night sky and everything in it. While the set up for this observatory is small, you may also receive that unbeatable small business experience from Gargan and the employees at Gargan Optics. Gargan loves to answer questions from visitors and indeed create an educational experience.
If you’ve never needed to visit an observatory and have your own set up at home, mainly include the Meade LX200 telescope, Gargan sells a variety of accessories to make your viewing of the night sky brighter and more enjoyable. He understands that it is a truly life-altering experience to see planets and galaxies up close and with incredible detail. Still, if you only have a backyard set up, you will be thoroughly taken back by this powerful equipment that helps you feel as if you are among the stars. At Gargan Optics, you see incredible stuff as well as astonishing knowledge about astronomy.
