About the event
Welcome! We invite you to join us under the immense beauty of our dark skies for a night of wonder and awe! Tucson AZ and the surrounding areas are the headquarters of the International Dark Sky Association who are our good friends! Their efforts have allowed for incredible views of the night sky, even near the center of Tucson. This is something that most cities lack. We take FULL advantage of this by hosting "Star Parties" throughout the year!
One of our main programs is stargazing! Each month we host these events with our best telescopes and binoculars with a goal to inspire and uplift the community towards the stunning beauty of this hobby.
These are all free to attend, but we'd really appreciate any donations, which goes straight into funding our other programs and maintaining the equipment!
join us for a cup of coffee, bring your family, learn something new and enjoy the stars, planets and the amazing Milky way galaxy.
Dress warm, bring a chair if you want. Don't forget your family and friends!
Each stargazing event starts at sunset, but be aware that "sunset" changes throughout the year. When in doubt: Sunset!
if you're familiar with astronomy, please connect with us. We are looking for knowledgeable volunteers who can man a telescope and help the community find, focus and explain objects if possible.
Let us know if you have any questions!
Just fyi, we are always looking for food donations (non-perishables), snacks, backpacks, telescopes and equipment.
Well see you out there under the stars
