Star Party

At the Palmer Observatory

June 11, 2022 / 8:30 PM–10:00 PM

The Palmer Observatory will open its doors and its roof to share a remarkable view of the wonders of the night sky through our state-of-the-art 20-inch telescope.

Join Museum astronomy staff and members of the Santa Barbara Astronomical Unit for an evening of craters on the Moon, nebulas, galaxies, and more.

This event is free and appropriate for all audiences. The Star Party may be cancelled due to cloudy skies or rain. Due to the use of shared telescopes, masks are required.
