Astronomy Day

Astronomy Day is a world-wide event observed each fall and spring. The next Astronomy Day is Oct 5, 2019; Astronomy Day next spring will be May 2, 2020. Clubs participating in Astronomy Day events on these two dates will be eligible to enter the competition for cash prizes. 

Local astronomical societies, planetariums, museums, and observatories will be sponsoring public viewing sessions, presentations, workshops, and other activities to increase public awareness about astronomy and our wonderful universe.
