Grand Canyon Star Party 2020

The 30th annual Grand Canyon Star Party will be held virtually June 13-20, 2020. While the on-site event at Grand Canyon National Park has been cancelled on both rims due to concerns over COVID-19 this year, the park hopes to bring the wonders of the night sky into the virtual realm through a series of video premieres on Grand Canyon’s official Facebook account.

Each evening from June 13-20, Grand Canyon National Park will premiere two videos at 6 and 7 p.m. PDT on our Facebook platform. Kicking off the Star Party is John Barentine, who has a doctorate in astronomy and is the director of public policy for the International Dark Sky Association, with a talk about “Dark Skies in Isolation: Why Protecting the Night Sky is More Important Than Ever.”

Grand Canyon National Park invites the public to celebrate Earth Science Week (ESW) and National Fossil Day festivities during the week of October 11-17, 2015.

ESW promotes understanding and appreciation of the earth sciences and their relevance to our daily lives. National Fossil Day, part of ESW, fosters a greater appreciation of the scientific and educational value of fossils and promotes public stewardship of fossil sites. A natural laboratory and classroom, Grand Canyon is an ideal place to celebrate ESW.
