Aspen Center for Environmental Studies invites you to the top of Aspen Mountain for our annual Stars Above Aspen Astronomy Night on Thursday, August 15 from 6:00 – 10:00pm! In partnership with Aspen Snowmass, explore the cosmos from 11,212 feet at the Sundeck at this all-ages event that’s sure to be out of this world.
The Silver Queen gondola will be open late for this special community astronomy night featuring a STARLAB planetarium tent, guided telescope stations, interactive presentations, legends and facts of the constellations, celestial crafts and games, star storytelling, a collaborative mural of the universe, physics experiments, and more.
The Sundeck Restaurant will be open for drinks and dinner. Guests should be prepared for evening mountain temperatures. A blanket for star-gazing and plenty of layers (including hats and gloves) are highly suggested.
The event is open to all ages.
Tickets will be sold through the Aspen Snowmass website.
