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.

Rocky Mountain Star Stare (RMSS)

June 22 - June 26

Rocky Mountain Star Stare (RMSS) is an annual star party sponsored by the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society. Held every summer, RMSS has been one of the nation’s premier star parties for the last 30 years. Located on 35 acres of land, RMSS’s “Starry Meadows” is conveniently located just over two hours southwest of Colorado Springs (outside of Gardner, CO), between the Sangre de Cristo and Wet mountain ranges, at an altitude of 7,600 feet above sea level. RMSS annually plays host to 300+ amateur and professional astronomers, family and friends.

We offer a truly amazing experience for individuals of all ages and all skill levels (beginners to experts) who are looking for an educational, astronomical related, outdoor activity in a pristine outdoor Colorado environment.

Enjoy National-level speakers, outdoor activities, children’s events, camping among friends, and appreciate the clear, dark skies of Colorado.
