Upcoming Star Parties:
Throughout the year, Yerkes holds public observing events in which you can enjoy the constellations, be amazed at the many celestial objects visible through our telescopes on the lawn, and try out some astronomy-related activities. The star parties will be held regardless of weather.
The cost for any of the star parties is $5 per person. For more information or to register for the next event, please click the button below.
Next year's regular star party schedule is still in the works. However, check our special star party for the Perseid Meteor Shower!
