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.

Lake Geneva Summer Star Parties

This summer GLAS is once again hosting multiple events each month! This June we will explore the skies above Geneva Lake at Seminary Park. July will be a huge collaboration of science organizations and speakers talking about Apollo 15 and the history/future of space travel. In August take a casual cruise around Geneva Lake while you keep your eyes peeled for meteors. And finally, in September enjoy beautiful Library Park and observe Jupiter and Saturn through telescopes. Click the link below for more details and to register!

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.
