The Observatory is a point of interest.

Summary[edit | edit source]


The Observatory is one of the various planetary Points of Interest in No Man's Sky. It is considered a Shelter. They can be found by using a ship's scanner while on a planet, or are one result of the 'Ask For Directions' interaction with a NPC.

Observatories have short satellite dishes on top of their structures. Inside, the player will encounter a console that requests the next entry in a numerical sequence. If the player inputs a correct entry, the console will mark a nearby Ruin.

The side rooms require an AtlasPass V2 to enter and contain lots of plants (carbon), several Cargo drop boxes, or even, on very rare occasions, an Exosuit upgrade.

Example Puzzle[edit | edit source]

1092 - 0921 - 9210 - ?

In this puzzle, the order of the digits is shifted to the left by one with each successive element, with the rightmost digit being moved to the far left position. Therefore, the correct input will be 2109.

Prior to Atlas Rises, Observatories could be found by using Signal Booster and scanning for Colonial Outpost.
