Telescope 2

Clark and his telescope.

This telescope was originally owned by Hiram Kent who gave it to his son, Jonathan Kent, who then gave it to his son, Clark Kent.

Clark used the telescope to point it at an unsuspecting Lana Lang when she was sitting on her front porch, or somewhere outside. (Pilot) Lana was not aware of this, but once when she came over, she looked in the telescope, which was pointing straight at her own house. Clark quickly moved the telescope higher, to stall his embarrassment that he'd been spying on her. (Metamorphosis) By at least 2002, Clark stopped using it to spy on Lana (he is not really seen doing so from the middle of Season One onward).

The telescope stood right at the edge of the huge barn window in Clark's loft. It has been standing there since he first got it, and he had been using it a while. There were some consequences, though.

The telescope was later broken, and Clark had to disassemble it. (Fade). He later seemed to get another one, which was most recently seen in Kent.


  • The telescope breaking could be seen as symbolic of Clark losing his father (since the telescope broke some time after Jonathan's death) and/or him and Lana drifting apart.
  • Clark Luthor was not impressed by Clark Kent's new telescope, and even knocked it over. This is what made Lois realize that he really wasn't "himself". (Kent)


This list is incomplete. So please, add applicable and correct information.


Clark: Wow, you and Chloe as roommates.
Lana: Did you ever see that coming?
Clark: Not in a million years.
Lana: What is it?
Clark: Nothing. Um... It's just you won't be the girl next door anymore.
Lana: I'm not going anywhere, Clark. Maybe now you can give your telescope to Ryan.

Santa Claus: Now, let me get this straight. You gave up your first Christmas with the girl you loved since you spied on her with your telescope to deliver these gifts?
Clark: Yeah, well, I mean, I wasn't spying.
