Stargazing Party

The Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium is thinking big — biggest ever — and you can join the stargazing fun. On August 10 (August 11, if it rains) the Museum will host a huge block party to set the Guinness World Record for the largest astronomy workshop anywhere, ever. The Saint J. Subaru Stargazing Party is more than a star party — we’ll have food trucks, astronomy activities for all ages, and your favorite planetarium presenters to guide you through the visible stars and constellations … while the Perseid meteor showers approach their peak.

Everyone is welcome to be part of the largest astronomy lesson in the world!

Here is what’s happening. At 5:30 PM on August 10th we’ll open the gates to Main Street in St. Johnsbury, Vermont (prior to this the road will be closed to provide enough room for all of you to join us). There will be food trucks, astronomy activities, and much more leading up to the record breaking attempt at 8:15 PM with science educator Bobby Farlice-Rubio. Directly after the thirty-minute lecture, Mark Breen of Eye on the Night Sky and VPR host Ric Cengeri will be taking the stage to do a live broadcast of the VPR Star Gazing Party. Our rain date is August 11th.
