Upcoming Astronomy Events
As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.

2022 Eastern Sierra Dark Sky Festival
June 23 @ 3:00 pm - June 26 @ 12:00 pm EDT
Get ready for stargazing under dark skies at 7020 ft. above sea level — where Earth’s atmosphere is thinner and the nighttime sky shines clearer. Observe deep space objects through huge telescopes, listen to lectures from professional astronomers, attend nightscape photography workshops, visit various booths and vendors, enjoy food trucks, beer, wine, and more — all under the dark skies and high elevation of the Eastern Sierra!
