International Astronomy Day

May 15

Our "First Night Out" Star Party is perfect for introducing the night sky to area youth.

International Astronomy Day is a way for astronomy enthusiasts and professionals to share their knowledge and love of outer space with the general public. It is also a way for everyone interested in space to explore their passion and increase their knowledge. It was started in 1973 by Doug Berger, the then president of the Astronomical Association of Northern California. Now, the day has expanded to include the entire world and many organizations and groups. It was also amended in 2006 to include a second day of celebration in the fall.

Far from city lights with a clear viewing sky unique to the area, Gardner Camp provides the area’s best opportunity to learn about astronomy and the night sky!  Our featured StarLab digital planetarium and our high-powered telescope technology elevate lessons in astronomy and space science into interactive and immersive experiences.
