Description

For eight days in June, park visitors explore the wonders of the night sky on Grand Canyon National Park's South Rim with the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association and on the North Rim with the Saguaro Astronomy Club of Phoenix.

Amateur astronomers from across the country volunteer their expertise and offer free nightly astronomy programs and telescope viewing. 

On the South Rim
Events include a slide show nightly at 8 pm, followed by telescope viewing behind Grand Canyon Visitor Center. Park rangers offer constellation tours at 9, 9:30, and 10 pm.   

On the North Rim
On the North Rim, telescopes will be set up on the porch of the Grand Canyon Lodge every evening. An astronomy slide show will be presented at 8:30 in the auditorium of the Grand Canyon Lodge. Green laser tours are also given, mostly spontaneously throughout the evening.
