Unless constructed with a specific research task in mind, observatories and other glass modules are imprudent for survival purposes.

The Observatory is a Habitat Compartments module which is used to observe the ocean and life forms in their natural habitat.

The Observatory is constructed with the Habitat Builder and of build 53518 no longer hasto be attached to a pre-existing room or corridor, so can be constructed alone.

A unique zen music soundtrack plays when inside the Observatory.


  • As of build 53518 Hatches can now be placed on the single side-panel, though the orientation of the module will apparently revert to the default when it becomes unattached from what it was previously built upon.
  • Ladders cannot be placed on this module, though the central shaft in the floor sugguests this was considered. It lines up well with the center height of a Multipurpose room place below it.
  • Reinforcements cannot be placed on this module.
  • The Observatory can be attached to another module via its single end-panel.
