About us

The Bareket Observatory is a scientific & public outreach astronomical facility.

Located near Jerusalem, facing the Judea mountains in Israel.



The primary function of the observatory is science, education and global astronomy outreach via our Astro-Edu network program and by Broadcasting live astronomical events via our Remote Internet-controlled robotic telescope.


The Astro-Edu-Network initiative provides a number of fascinating resources for astronomy and space, including access to virtual and remote robotic telescopes, as well as interactive applications.

With them, students can explore mathematics, physics, geography and other subjects using genuine astronomy and space-related data, and making real scientific observations.
