Family-friendly Night-sky Viewing Events Continue at LPI

LPI, with its partner, the JSC Astronomical Society, will continue to offer night-sky viewing events – open to explorers of all ages – at the Lunar and Planetary Institute.  Night-sky viewing events will be offered about four times a year. We will continue to have hands-on activities in addition to viewing through telescopes — if we have clear skies (fingers crossed)!

Activities/What to Expect: 
Hands-on activities and demonstrations will allow families and inquisitive adults to explore the theme of the day for themselves. All ages are welcome!

Please note: Each minor must be accompanied by a responsible parent or adult the entire time they are visiting the LPI.

Where to go:
The Institute is located at Universities Space Research Association, 3600 Bay Area Boulevard, Houston, TX 77058. A map of the region and the LPI location is available for download.
