Family Star Party

Event Details:

Family Star Party provides a safe, outdoor learning environment for the whole family connecting attendees to the wonders of the universe. Through Discovery Center’s partnership with Mobile Earth + Space Observatory, a “science center on wheels” equipped with telescopes, another dimension of fun is added to the experience.

This month, we discuss how astronomers are looking for potentially habitable worlds, and what we might find there.


  • Look through multiple telescopes and learn about the objects in our night sky from Colorado Springs Astronomical Society astronomy outreach guides and Discovery Center educators
  • Interact with the Mobile Earth + Space Observatory’s scientific demos and exhibits
  • Possible views of Venus, Mars, and the First Quarter Moon
  • Engage with self-guided activities and Science On a Sphere® presentations in the Discovery Center
