Dark Sky Festival September 11-13,2015

Second Annual Dark Sky Festival September 11 to 13, 2015 at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

The night sky in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is nationally recognized. Our darkness not only adds to the aesthetic qualities of the wilderness, but is important to the health of our wildlife. The Dark Sky Festival aims to educate visitors about the importance of this park resource and inspire them to take action in their own community. We hope you join us in the summer of 2015 for the second annual Dark Sky Festival and share your passion for the night sky and astronomy during this fun weekend.

The weekend will include:

  • constellation tours
  • telescope viewings
  • solar observations
  • astronaut speakers
  • kids’ activities
  • speakers on robotic mars missions
  • model rocket building
  • National Park Service programs
  • special Crystal Cave tours
  • nature walks
  • audio visual presentations
  • photography presentations
  • musical performances
