Sky Fest banner

In-person public events at the Lunar and Planetary Institute have been postponed until further notice. The Lunar and Planetary Institute’s new public engagement program provides the opportunity to connect with planetary scientists from home! Virtual Exploration Experiences with Planetary Scientists (VEEPS) are 30-minute online sessions that include a scientist’s presentation, a demonstration related to the topic, and some time for questions and discussion with the scientist.

See our VEEPS events  

Recordings of past Cosmic Explorations Speaker Series presentations are available to view online, as well as LPI Education videos.


Sky Fest is open to explorers of all ages, and includes hands-on activities, scientist presentations and night-sky viewing through telescopes (weather permitting). With assistance from the JSC Astronomy Society, Sky Fest events are offered approximately four times a year.

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