Ferrari Club of America - Southwest Region

North San Diego County Palomar Observatory Drive & Tour


Caltech and the Observatory have invited your club to an exclusive tour of the visitor center and the three active research telescopes: the 200-inch Hale, the 48-inch Samuel Oschin and the 60-inch telescope.

Palomar Observatory is the center of astronomical research owned and operated by the California Institute of Technology. Conceived almost a hundred years ago, the
Palomar Observatory is an iconic facility for scientific advancement.

Departure from Mission San Luis Rey, Oceanside, will be no later than 8:30 am. We have assigned Ferrari parking at the Palomar Observatory and our tour begins at 10 am at the Visitor Center. The tour is one hour and for those who wish to join us, there will be a lunch following the tour at nearby Mother’s Kitchen.

It’s a beautiful rural mountain drive and a wonderful opportunity to have a special tour of the Observatory. You may arrive on your own should you be coming from San Diego.

We thank our co-member from Florida, Fiorella Terenzi, our own Denise Ferrari, and Caltech’s Steve Flanders for this opportunity.
Tour – Gratis
Pre-ordered Lunch - $20
Tour is limited to the first 40 guests.
