Volunteer astronomers from the Saguaro Astronomy Club of Phoenix set up telescopes on the veranda of the Grand Lodge North Rim. 8pm evening programs will prepare star gazers for some of the starry sights.
Activities on the South Rim include volunteers from the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association offering a nightly slide show at 8pm in the Grand Canyon Visitor Center theater followed by telescope viewing behind the building.
Viewing the night sky is best after 9pm and continues well into the night. Dress warm for the cool high elevation temperatures. Bring a flashlight but not white light that will reduce night vision. Make it a red light with cellophane, nail polish or permanent marker. Give your eyes time to adapt to the dark by counting to 10 with eyes closed, and of course not walking at the same time.
Join the party and look to the sky!
All events are free and made possible by funding from Grand Canyon Association.
