RASC National Society: Self-Isolation Star Parties (ONLINE)

Virtual Star Party

Do you miss those wonderful Star Parties hosted by RASC, where you get to look at the night sky and learn about what's up there? We do too! That's why we're hosting online star parties for the next 2 months!

Join RASC Outreach Coordinator Jenna Hinds and Astronomy In Action's Ryan Marciniak as we bring you the night sky every two weeks. Weather- and Moon-permitting, we will also show you what's up there using The RASC Robotic Telescope in California! Stick around until 11:15pm ET or so for a live tour of the night's deep-sky objects!

Register here! Choose the specific events you would like to attend. If you don't yet know if you'll be free on a certain date, you can always click this link later and register once you know for sure.

Registration is limited to 500 people. If registration is full, you can watch the livestreams on The RASC YouTube Channel. Livestreams will start at the same time as the webinar.
