An event every day that begins at 7:00 am, repeating until September 11, 2021
Astrofest is an annual Star Party at Kopernik that features extraordinary speakers and night sky observing. Join the Kopernik Astronomical Society at the 39th Annual AstroFest. Enjoy astronomy workshops, talks, exhibits, demonstrations, and solar and nighttime observing. Check out the detailed schedule of the event below!
Doors open at 7 PM and the program will begin at 7:30. After the programs, if skies permit, you are invited to view the night sky through Kopernik’s telescopes. See Jupiter, Saturn, and a multitude of deep-sky objects such as the Andromeda Galaxy, Ring Nebula, and the Globular star cluster in Hercules! The moon will be coming up late so we should also get a good look at the Milky Way.
While inside Kopernik’s main building, masks are required regardless of vaccination status.
For those unable to join us in person, Kopernik plans to livestream this program on our YouTube channel. Kopernik’s Friday Night Livestreams (FNLs) have become very popular as they are both entertaining and educational. We have over 2500 subscribers to our YouTube channel and they are from literally around the world. Through the chat, you can ask questions directly to the presenter.
