New Moon Stargazing

Aspen Science Center

About

T

he stunning wonder of the cosmos is on display at elevations ranging from 8,000 to 12,095 feet, offering a stunning glimpse back in time and across the universe.

Join us for new moon stargazing. When the moon is dark, the stars and planets shine! These smaller events provide the opportunity for longer viewing times, more thorough explanations of what you are seeing, how the cosmos work, and telescope technology. We’ve teamed up with local astronomers who have 8″, 10″ and 16″ telescopes that will let you see the rings of Saturn and deep into the cosmos where nebulae and novae await! This is serious stargazing for experienced and novice stargazers alike!

And Watch our calendar of events to confirm these events and find out the location. The further we get from the city lights, the more we can see! Ever been stargazing at Ashcroft? Or on top of Independence Pass? You won’t want to miss this!

The schedule is as follows, with locations to be announced depending. All events start shortly after sunset, and we will go as long as people want to observe! You can join at any point during the evening.

Saturday, June 24, Independence Pass — THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
Saturday, July 22, Crown Mountain Park, El Jebel. — SOLD OUT
