Abstract: Let H be an algebraic subgroup of a linear algebraic group G over an algebraically closed field K. We show that H is observable in G (if) and only if there exists a finite-dimensional rational G-module V and an element v of V such that H is the isotropy subgroup of v as well as the isotropy subgroup of the line Kv.
