Public Astronomy Programs

The Astro Show

FREE for Everyone. $5-$20/Person Suggested Donation Online.

We’ve converted all the best parts of our virtual programs under one cohesive streaming roof: The Astro Show! Streaming live every other Tuesday at 6pm MT on YouTube and Twitch, The Astro Show is the place to be if you’re curious about the Universe. There, you can pick the brains of astrophysicists, get some advice from a space doctor, learn what Nobel laureates have to say about life, and find out what’s happening up above your head all in one place!

If you haven’t already checked out past shows of Ask Dr. Sam, Astro-BS, Sci-fi Explained, Mind Bending Astronomy, Looking Up, or Virtual Stargazing we encourage you to do. All previous shows can be found on our YouTube channel.

We kindly ask that you support our organization so we can continue to support people all over the country with engaging, virtual astronomy programming. Please connect with us so we can connect you, your friends, and family to the Cosmos!

Come Interact with Us and the Universe!

Stargazing @ Stilson

FREE for Everyone. Every CLEAR Thursday Night!

Wyoming Stargazing offers weekly, free, year-round, public stargazing events on CLEAR Thursdays beginning approx. one hour after sunset at the Stilson Parking Lot in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (when the temperature is above zero degrees Fahrenheit!). There is $25/person recommended donation.

Join Wyoming Stargazing at the Stilson Parking Lot (Village Road Transit Center) (in the north west corner of the lot behind the bus hut where there are no lights – see the pin on the map below) for our free public stargazing programs. Our astronomy educators will use one of our large aperture telescopes to show you planets, stars, planetary nebulae, galaxies, and more! We will also have several iPads with the Star Walk application installed on them so you can explore the heavens while others are looking through the telescopes. Throughout the night our astronomy educators will tell you everything you want to know about the objects you are viewing. We can also answer all your other questions about astronomy. There is no need to reserve your spot in advance. You can come and go as you please. We look forward to seeing you under the stars! Please dress warmly.

In the event of bad weather, no worries! We’ll post the cancellation notice below as well as on our Facebook and Instagram accounts. You can join us at the office (1135 Maple Way, Unit 1, Jackson, WY 83001) for a sci-fi moving screening! Popcorn, apple cider, and hot cocoa are on us. Masks recommended, hand sanitizer provided. Check out tonight’s weather conditions here.

These programs were made possible through generous support from the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, and the generous donations from people just like you!
