What is a Star Party?

A Lowell Observatory Star Party is a high-quality, educational stargazing experience that will show you our dark skies like you’ve never seen them before. Our educators use portable telescopes and powerful lasers to show you objects like:

  • Galaxies
  • Star Clusters
  • Binary Stars
  • Laser-guided Constellation Tours

Star Parties can be booked for wedding receptions, birthday parties, conferences, or any other gathering. We offer flexible scheduling and a variety of packages to best tailor the experience to your needs. Learn about the cosmos with a private viewing experience at your event — book a Star Party with us today! 


Available every month except July. Star parties may be rescheduled due to inclement weather, or alternative programming may be offered.
