The World Above the Tetons

Through its daily work, Wyoming Stargazing is proud to carry on the longstanding local traditions of scientific inquiry and education as a means to a richer, more meaningful life here in the Tetons.

Did you know that from here on our perch at 6,200 feet, we have nearly 360-degree views of the Milky Way, from Mt. Leidy to the top of the Grand?

But the sky is not the limit.

Wyoming Stargazing is bringing some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the fields of space travel, supernovae, life on other worlds, dark sky preservation, and more to share their research and answer our most pressing questions about “The World Above the Tetons.”
