RASC National Society Videos: Self-Isolation Star Parties

Self-Isolation Star Parties

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!

Join RASC Outreach Coordinator Jenna Hinds and Astronomy In Action's Ryan Marciniak as we bring you the night sky. We'll talk about space news, and weather- and Moon-permitting, we will do our best to bring you live views of the night sky using our telescopes.

Topics change each session, and we always bring guests on board. Find out more about planned star parties below!

You can also watch the livestreams on The RASC YouTube Channel. Livestreams will start at the same time as the webinar.
