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.

Michigan's largest public star party is celebrating its 25th year! Over 70,000 have enjoyed views through large telescopes, listened to expert talks on astronomy, and saw cool science experiments. There's something for everyone. Astronomy at the Beach is volunteer-led by amateur clubs throughout southeast Michigan. Last year, the event was totally virtual, with dozens of interactive online events. Check our website for our 2021 plans.
