March 2024 Free Public Star Parties

Through its monthly public star party series, Kanab, Utah’s nonprofit Stellar Vista Observatory (SVO) provides observational experiences for people to enjoy, appreciate and comprehend what we can see in the exceptionally starry skies of southern Utah.

For the month of March, two public star parties are planned. Kanab Library will host the first while Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park will host the second.

On Thursday, March 7, International Women’s Day, SVO will commemorate the illustrious women of science who have made significant contributions in the field of astronomy. The indoor presentation in the Library Community Room will be followed by direct observation of the night sky at the eyepiece of our powerful telescopes right outside the building at 374 N. Main Street in Kanab.

Two weeks later, on Friday, March 22nd, Our telescopes will be set up on the beautiful observation deck at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park from 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm, with an alternative date of February 23 in case of cloudy skies. A $5 entrance fee is required at the park gate for entry into the park to participate in the star party.

For more information about these and other opportunities for the public to enjoy the lovely night skies above Kanab, visit https://stellarvistaobservatory.org/, or call 435-644-3735.
