Stargazing on Indy Pass with Aspen Science Center

June 24, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 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.

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. This is serious stargazing for serious and novice stargazers alike! We’ve teamed up with Three Rivers Astronomy Club, who have 8″, 10″ and 16″ 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!

June 24th we will meet at the parking lot on top of Independence Pass, where the Continental Divide sign and restrooms are. This is an approximately 20 mile and thirty minute drive on Route 82 east of City Market in Aspen. Join us anytime after 8:00 pm. We will be there until 11:00 pm, probably later. Stay as long as you want. Bring plenty of warm layers, something to sit on if you wish, and binoculars if you have them. This event is free!
