The 18th Annual Astronomy Festival was held June 13 - 16, 2018 with Bryce Canyon's Astronomy Rangers and local Astronomical Societies. Keynote Speaker Dr. Michelle Thaller, Astronomer, NASA Headquarters. Check back soon for a schedule of next year's events!
Bryce Canyon Star Gazing
However, every Tues, Thurs and Sat night during the Summer, Bryce Canyon does an astronomy presentation by their "Dark Rangers". This consists of an amusing slide show in their amphitheater and afterward, access to about 6 huge telescopes set up in the parking lot behind the Visitor's Center. Bryce Canyon is one of the best places (according to the national park service) to view the night sky because of the thinness of the atmosphere and no nearby towns to cast light on the sky.
The telescope area opens at about 10:15pm.
We offer the DELUXE stargazing experience featuring:
Lots of BIG telescopes = more viewing & less queueing
Expert telescope operators
Fun and funny laser constellation tours
A variety of hi-tech educational multimedia shows
Unparalleled enthusiasm for sharing astronomy
Model rocket workshops
AND much, much, MORE.
