Dunlap Institute: Planet Gazing Party

Planet-gazing Star Party
Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 7:30pm to 10:30pm

Come see the planets as you've never seen them before! On September 14, join us for our second annual Planet Gazing Party with telescopes, prizes, stars and planets. Starting at 7:30pm, we'll have telescopes set up to view Jupiter, Saturn, and their moons. Come see mountains and craters on our own Moon in spectacular detail. Talk to astronomers and telescope enthusiasts and get all your space questions answered. Take a selfie with our gigantic Moon globe and play trivia games to win great prizes.

Make sure to arrive before 9:00pm if you want to catch Jupiter and its moons. Saturn and the Moon will be visible until the conclusion of the event.
