Starry Nights programs consist of evening star parties and astronomy workshops for children. Children and groups who attend the workshop and at least four star parties can earn a free telescope!


We will be holding free Star Parties every Friday evening, from 9 pm - 12 Midnight. Next event is Friday,  August 11

Note that these events are weather dependent and subject to cancellation. Advisories are sent to our email lists and through our Twitter feed by Friday morning at 11 am.
