Places to Go, Stars to See

star party graphicKeep up with astronomy and space events from coast to coast with these listings. They include star parties, museum events, public talks, and many other events. We'll add new activities as we hear about them, so check back often for events in your area.

Because weather conditions can change rapidly, and because the COVID-19 outbreak has forced many facilities to close or cancel events, call or check the event website for details before attending any skywatching event.

We also have listings of observatories, planetariums, and other public facilities that offer views through telescopes at various times of the year.
