The Night Sky Festival celebrates Joshua Tree National Park’s night sky with a 2-day event that includes activities for all ages.

In the morning, visit Sky’s The Limit Observatory for a guided tour of the Orrery, a scale model of the solar system that is large enough to walk around and through. While there, take a guided walk on a wilderness or hiking trail with docents explaining the unique environment’s plants, animals, and geology. Stop at the solar telescope for a close-up look at the sun. Youth can participate in astronomy-themed crafts. Don’t forget to try your luck at Panning for Gold with First Class Miners while you are there.

The afternoon features a variety of astronomy lectures by knowledgeable presenters. Attendees can stop at the night sky “selfie” photo booth and various information tables, including the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) and other supporting organizations. The event’s highlight is the Night Star Party, where spectacular views of our desert night sky are abundant through their 20 telescopes with astronomers. Listen as these experts explain what you are seeing. Enjoy live music, constellation tours, and storytelling throughout the evening.

Proceeds from this event support nonprofit organizations that provide educational programs.
