Socially Distant Star Parties
Due to the current trend of COVID-19 GLAS Star Parties are going to look a little different this year. Our staff and volunteers are taking measures to ensure these events are safe, socially-distanced and fun for your whole family! Check below for upcoming outdoor events.
Solar System Star Party
GLAS is partnering with the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts to bring you a solar system themed star party! There will be telescopes to view Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. Learn how to find objects in the sky and how they move, walk a scaled model of our solar system, or enjoy some music!
*Unfortunately tickets are sold out, but you can be put on the wait list by clicking below.*
Let’s stay connected during this time of social distancing. We are successfully streaming planetarium shows as a way to keep people looking up and learning about astronomy. Every week, see what’s new in the sky and explore an astronomy topic in-depth with GLAS staff and astronomers.
You can watch all of our previous episodes here or on YouTube and don’t forget to join us live every Friday night! As long as there is an advisory to stay home and be safe we will be streaming with new content every week.
You can subscribe to our YouTube page or submit the form at the top of the page to get regular updates about our programs.
Travel through the solar system and beyond, at any time of day or night. Planetarium shows feature interactive photos and videos.
Date and Time: Friday 8pm
Location: GLAS YouTube Channel
IDATA is a three year project funded by the National Science Foundation to engage a group of high school age students, their teachers, professional astronomers, software engineers, and design experts in the user-centered design process of data analysis software for astronomy.
