New Moon Stargazing

Aspen Science Center



he captivating wonder of the cosmos is on display at elevations ranging from 6,000 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 events provide the opportunity for longer viewing times and more thorough explanations of what you are seeing, how the cosmos works, and telescope technology. We’ve teamed up with local astronomers who have 8″, 10″, 16″, and 22″ telescopes that will let you see not only the rings of Saturn but deep into the cosmos where nebulae, novae, and galaxies await! This is serious stargazing for experienced and novice stargazers alike!

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!
