An Observatory is a type of location and point of interest in No Man's Sky. Each Observatory has a large satellite dish on top. The inside of the building houses a terminal, and sometimes an alien NPC will be present. Sometimes there could be a Multi-tool in the wall to buy. Interacting with the terminal presents a puzzle revolving around a four digit number. Solving the puzzle will lead the player to a Plaque or a Monolith.

Puzzle guide

The puzzles given in Observatories follow a pattern. Given several numbers of the same four digits, find the solution that shows the digits in the same order but shifted.
