The Observatory is a publication, variously described as a journal, a magazine and a review, devoted to astronomy. It has appeared regularly since 1877, and is currently published every two months.

Although it is not published by the Royal Astronomical Society, it publishes the reports of their meetings and is available at a reduced rate to their fellows. Other features are the extensive book reviews and "Here and There", a collection of misprints and ridiculous statements of astronomical interest.

The founder and first editor (1877–82) was William Christie, then Chief Assistant at the Royal Observatory and later Astronomer Royal. Notable subsequent editors include:
