Free Friday Stargazing/Planetarium Programs!

Thanks to the generous support of people like you Wyoming Stargazing is offering even more FREE, year-round public stargazing/planetarium programs.

Now, we have the The Dark Sky Pavilion that was designed by local artist Natalie Clark and designer Jakub Galczynski and funded by Natalie Clark, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, and the Center of Wonder. The Dark Sky Pavilion allows us to almost NEVER cancel any more public programs.

1,000th Astronomy Program

Earlier this week our Executive Director, Dr. Samuel Singer, led Wyoming Stargazing’s 1,000th astronomy program since our very first program in March of 2014. We’ve come a long way since that first, cold, winter night at the Stilson Parking Lot. We’d like to thank everyone who has helped us along the way from folks who volunteered at just one event and to the folks that keep coming back time after time, to our amazing donors and board of directors, to the more than 20,000 people who have attended our programs, to our staff both past and present, to the concierge who help us book stargazing programs, to the people who believed in us from the very beginning and selflessly gave up their time to help us, and to the amazing community organizations that supported us over the last few years which include, but are not limited to: The Center of Wonder, The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, the Center for the Arts, pARTners, Rendezvous Lands Conservancy, 1% for the Tetons, The Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board, the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium, Quiznos, the Whole Grocer, Lucky’s, Elevated Grounds, Teton County Park and Recreation, and others.
