Wyoming Stargazing Pre-Eclipse Fundraising Party

August 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Join Wyoming Stargazing at the summit of Snow King Mountain for one fabulous pre-eclipse fundraising party on Saturday evening before the eclipse.

On Saturday, author and astrobiologist David Grinspoon will deliver an alluring presentation on astronomy, life in the universe, and the eclipse.

After the presentation, weather permitting, join our Stargazing Leaders and 10 telescopes outside the tent for the valley’s best views of Jupiter, Saturn, star clusters, nebulae, and far off galaxies.

We’ll also be dedicating our outdoor inflatable planetarium, The Dark Sky Pavilion, with special showings of the American Museum of Natural History’s film Dark Universe, which is narrated by Neil deGrass Tyson.

Don’t leave before you get a signed photo from Astronaut Scott!
