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.
And if you’d like free copies of Sky & Telescope‘s Let’s Go Stargazing flyer or door prizes for your next star party, you can fill out this form.

Clark 125th Anniversary | Celebrating Saturn

September 16, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 8:45 pm EDT

Free

Join us for a Livestream celebration of the 125th anniversary of the historic Clark Refractor! Starting at 8:00 pm PDT, Lowell Historian Kevin Schindler will discuss the evolution of the Clark Refractor’s tracking system, from an old clock drive to Rube Goldberg-like governor to modern stepper motors.

Lowell educators at the Clark Refractor will then share live views of the planet Jupiter, which Percival Lowell and EC Slipher studied more than a century ago.

Finally, Lowell Astronomer Dr. Amanda Bosh will join Schindler to discuss this historic research of Saturn and how it compares to her modern-day studies.
