Great Basin Astronomy Festival

September 23 - September 24

With the darkest, quietest skies in the Lower 48, Great Basin National Park is the perfect place for an Astronomy Festival, featuring talks by astro-experts, photography workshops, and unbeatable stargazing, including through dozens of real-deal telescopes that truly let you see for yourself. By day, explore the park’s alpine lakes, peak-bagging trails, ancient Bristlecone pine groves, and Lehman Caves—but nighttime is when you discover why “Half the Park is After Dark.” Learn the basics of astronomy through a variety of Dark Sky Ranger-led presentations, gaze into the heavens with telescopes accompanied by astronomical experts, learn astrophotography tips and tricks for all camera formats, certify the whole fam with a Deep Space Certificate and other arts and crafts and beyond, at this free, Nevada signature event.
