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.

Since 1976, the Escambia Amateur Astronomers have hosted beach gazes for the public every summer. Our gazes will be at Pensacola Beach Pavilion on the weekends closest to the firsth quarter moon. There is no fee, and free parking in the lot by the famed Pensacola Beach Beach Ball water tower. Bring your smartphone to image the Sun, Moon, planets, ISS passes, and constellations. Free star maps, constellion tours, telescope and astrophotography advice. Clear skies permitting, of course.
