Lowell-observatoriet er eit astronomisk observatorium i Flagstaff i Arizona i USA. Lowell-observatoriet vart grunnlagd i 1894 og er av dei eldste i USA. Det fekk status som National Historic Landmark i 1965. I 2011 vart observatoriet kåra til ein av dei 100 viktigaste stadane i verda av magasinet TIME.

Observatoriet ligg 2200 meter over havet. Opphavleg vart det bygd for studiet av Mars, men observasjonsprogrammet vart snart utvida til òg å omfatte dei andre planetane. Arbeidsfeltet har seinare ekspandert ytterlegare, og det er blitt utført viktige undersøkingar, mellom anna over galaksar.

Built in 1894, it is one of the oldest observatories in the US and has led to many important discoveries. In 1930, Clyde Tombaugh identified the solar body Pluto (originally thought to be a planet).

If the Clark Telescope is open for viewing, check it out. Lowell used to look at Mars through this.
