Clarence T. Jones Observatory

Join us at one of Chattanooga's premiere free attractions.

The Observatory is located 4.5 miles east of campus at 10 Tuxedo Avenue, north of Brainerd Road and Belvoir Ave.

If you have trouble with the path up the front entrance, feel free to park in the parking lot behind Brainerd United Methodist Church.  Walk up the trail by the cemetery and use the back entrance.

We are open on most Sunday evenings during the UTC school year.
