Astronomy Festival on the National Mall


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


NOVA’s largest astronomy event returns to the National Mall on June 22, 2019, for its tenth year running!

That evening, amateur and expert stargazers unite for a free guided tour of the night sky, thanks to Dr. Donald Lubowich, Coordinator of Astronomy Outreach at Hofstra University, and many other astronomical organizations.

This highly anticipated festival will feature hands-on activities, demonstrations, videos, and even a planetarium show! There will be opportunities to gaze through telescopes set up along the Mall, providing sights of sunspots as well as close-up views of the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, double stars, and star clusters! Individuals can also speak with representatives from highly recognized science institutions and universities and learn more about astronomical discoveries and careers in science!
