Come explore the night sky in a local open space!

Since the dawn of time, humans have tilted their heads back and gazed at the wonders of the night sky. Family Star Party connects kids and families to the wonders of the cosmos in ways ranging from Galileo and his first telescope to the future of space exploration with the Webb Space Telescope and more. Join the Space Foundation for an outdoor Star Party in the trails and open spaces, as we look to the stars and discover the wonders of the universe. This event looks to create a fun, learning environment for the whole family and inspire the next generation of astronomy enthusiasts!
