  • Information
    Introduction
    Songam Space Center, set against the gorgeous backdrop of nearby Jangheung Park, Yangju-si, Gyeonggi-do, is one of the largest space themed parks in Korea. Situated on Gyeomyeongsan Mountain at around 440 meters above the sea level, the observatory (B1-3F) features a main telescope that was locally developed and allows visitors to see the stars even during the day. The observatory is part of Stars Valley, which consists of three different buildings: the Space Center, Star House, and Songam Observatory.

    Newton Center, a main observatory center of Songsam Observatory has a 600 milimeter Ritchey-Chretien reflecting telescope allowing for clear and convenient observation of the stars. Galilei Center, a sub-observatory facility has seven telescopes including reflecting, catadioptric and refracting telescopes, as well as a CCD camera, digital camera, intermediate telescope and other observation aid devices. Facilities at the observatory include the Challenger Learning Center, a Digital Planetarium, and Star House, a four-story accommodation/training facility. There are also two cable cars, each of which can hold as many as 33 people.
