Event Description

Join us at MOAS as we celebrate the wonders of astronomy and the night sky for Florida’s most exciting star party.

Stop by MOAS for our Night Sky Festival as we peer through a wide variety of telescopes set up outside on the front entrance courtyard. The autumnal equinox sky is in full view as we observe the half Moon, Saturn, The Summer Triangle, and much more. Throughout the evening, we will be performing live outdoor sky tours with green laser pointers, presenting astronomy programs in the Lohman Planetarium, and conducting hands-on activities around the Museum.

The outdoor portion of the MOAS Night Sky Festival is free and is weather permitting. 

Parking is limited. Planetarium shows have limited seating and are first-come, first-served. 

The outdoor portion of the event is free. Planetarium shows are free for members, $5.00 for non-members and free for children 5 and under.
