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.
Online Viewing Session
December 9 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm ESTFree
Enjoy the wonders of the universe as seen through the “eyes” of the KAS Remote Telescope, located under the dark skies of southeastern Arizona.
Participants will enjoy views of deep-sky objects captured fresh off the system’s CCD cameras in Arizona, transmitted directly to you via the internet on your computer, tablet or smart phone screen. Each session will be hosted by a knowledgeable KAS member. The host will introduce each deep sky target to be imaged and provide background information and interesting scientific tidbits while the exposure is in progress. Once the session has concluded, attendees will be provided with a link to download the images captured that night to share with friends and keep as mementos.

If weather conditions are not favorable, there will be a second “cloud date” on December 16th. Postponement or cancellation information will be posted our website and social media platforms.
