New Moon Stargazing

Aspen Science Center



he stunning wonder of the cosmos are 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 Three Rivers Astronomy Club, who have 8″, 12″ and 15″ telescopes that will let you see the rings of Saturn and deep into the cosmos where nebulae and novae await! 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 on the weather. All events start at 8:00 pm, and we will go as long as people want to observe! You can join us at any point in the evening after 8:00.
