This article is about Observatory in Below Zero. Click here for information on this subject in Subnautica.

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 can be attached to pre-existing base pieces, or built solely by itself. 

Music no longer plays when stepping into the Observatory.


  • 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.


The blueprint for this object is acquired by scanning the Observatory near the Delta Station.
