Through the years, the Observatory has been home to many discoveries, including the first detection of the expanding nature of the universe, the discovery of Pluto, moon mapping for the Apollo program to the moon, the rings of Uranus, atmosphere of Pluto, and scores of others.

Because of the significant scientific and cultural heritage of Lowell Observatory, it has been recognized as a Registered National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service, an Arizona Treasure by Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, and included by First Lady Hillary Clinton in her Save Americas Treasures program. In 2011 Time magazine named Lowell one of The Worlds 100 Most Important Places.

In 2014 Lowell Observatory took a major step toward ensuring this heritage is preserved by opening the Putnam Collection Center. This facility will ultimately house the Observatorys vast collection of documents and artifacts. Some of these treasures include correspondence with such luminaries as Einstein and Hubble, Percival Lowells cherished Mars globes, one of the original Pluto discovery plates, and Percival Lowells 1911 Stevens-Duryea automobile.

When we're done exploring the observatory, we will stop for a bite to eat before heading back to Phoenix.
