Virtual Astronomy Day 2021

The Museums are open, but we know not everyone is able (or ready) to visit in person. That’s OK! We still have lots of fun available for you!

We’re celebrating Astronomy Day, which began in California in 1973 as a way to share the joy of astronomy with the public and has grown into a worldwide annual event! These activities can enhance your experience at our in-person Astronomy Day event, or stand alone, providing lots of opportunities to get your creative energy flowing.

Your support helps fund dynamic family programming that makes learning fun for all ages.

Please join us by making a gift today.
