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.

Mapping the surfaces of Mars and the Moon from orbit and from the surface: a status report
Based on over 30 years experience of working on projects arising from the Mullard Space Science Laboratory's collaboration with the NASA & ESA Lunar and Martian missions, Prof. Muller will illustrate how the techniques for mapping the surface of these bodies from orbit have developed over the years.� Prof. Muller will also describe highlights of what we have learned from these imaging studies, along with many anecdotes from his work with many International Colleagues.
