Family Star Party

Event Details:

Did you know that a telescope not only helps us see distant objects but also helps us see back in time? The light that leaves stars, nebulae, and galaxies takes a long, long time to reach us, and it can show us what the universe looked like thousands, millions, and even billions of years ago!

Outside (weather permitting):

  • Crescent Moon
  • Orion the Hunter
  • Galaxies in Leo and Virgo


  • Science On a Sphere®: Exploring deep space
  • El Pomar Space Gallery scavenger hunt

Space Foundation Discovery Center Family Star Parties are supported by members of the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society.
