New Moon Stargazing
October 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-6
The stunning wonder of the cosmos are on display at elevations ranging from 8,000 to 12,095 feet, offering a stunning glimpse back in time and across the universe. For this event, we will be at the Aspen Center for Physics, 700 Gillespie Street, Aspen. This event will be held weather permitting. Please register at our website so that we can inform you if we need to cancel.
Join us for new moon stargazing. When the moon is dark, the stars and planets shine! These smaller events provide the opportunity for longer viewing times, more thorough explanations of what you are seeing, how the cosmos work, and telescope technology. We’ve teamed up with Three Rivers Astronomy Club, who have 8″, 12″ and 15″ telescopes that will let you see the rings of Saturn and deep into the cosmos where nebulae and novae await! Watch our calendar of events to confirm these events and find out the location. The further we get from the city lights, the more we can see! Ever been stargazing at Ashcroft? Or on top of Independence Pass? You won’t want to miss this!
This event is free, and will be held unless we have cloudy skies. Dress warmly. Free hot chocolate will be provided!
Please get your free tickets on our website so that we can alert you in case we need to cancel.
