About this spot
The Observatory is located at the top of a 447 ft/136.2 m tower on the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. The tower on the west end of the bridge is the Observatory. The Observatory shares a state park with Ft. Knox (not the Ft Knox with the gold.) The view is spectacular, particularly in October during the fall foliage color change. The season runs from May 1 to October 31.
