Family Star Party

Since the dawn of time, humans have tilted their heads back and gazed at the wonders of the night sky.  

Family Star Party connects kids and families to the wonders of the cosmos in ways ranging from Galileo and his first telescope to the future of space exploration with the Webb Space Telescope and more. 

Visitors to Discovery Center’s Family Star Party get to put their eye into the eyepieces of several telescopes, and much more, including space and astronomy themed Science on a Sphere® shows in our Northrup Grumman Science Center and all our space artifacts in our El Pomar Space Gallery. 

We have also partnered with the Mobile Earth & Space Observatory (MESO) which joins us to add another dimension of fun to our Family Star Party experience!
