The Vernonia Peak Observatory (VPO) is a private research facility owned and operated by the Northwest Astronomy Group (NWAG); a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Our facilities are located in the coast range of northwestern Oregon and are situated roughly halfway between the cities of Portland and Astoria.


The NWAG is composed of amateur astronomers from a diverse range of backgrounds which include but are not restricted to materials science, electronic and structural engineering, physics, computer science and software engineering, geology, and education. These talents when conjoined with the ability and desire to achieve our goals help to make NWAG and the Vernonia Peak Observatory a promising vehicle for public education and private amateur research.


More information regarding the NWAG, its activities, and the Vernonia Peak Observatory may be accessed via the links on this website. Please accept our invitation to peruse it. There are a number of pages accessible from sub-menus on many of these pages. In addition: if you have any questions or comments feel free to contact us.
