United States Naval Observatory

The U.S. Naval Observatory is the country’s leading authority for astronomical and timing data required for navigation at sea, on land and in space. It is also home to the "Master Clock" which provides the precise time. The grounds also serve as the private residence for the Vice President of the United States. Occasional public tours are offered Monday nights. The US Naval Observatory is less than 10 minutes from our Washington DC hotel in Dupont Circle.
