Aspen Snowmass and Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) will host the third annual Stars Above Aspen event on Aspen Mountain Monday, Aug. 13 from 6:00 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. The Silver Queen gondola will be open late for this special community astronomy night featuring a STARLAB planetarium tent, guided telescope stations, interactive presentations, sunset yoga, legends and facts of the constellations, celestial crafts and games, star storytelling, space-themed face painting, a collaborative mural of the universe, physics experiments, and more.
“There is no better place to gaze at the stars than at almost 12,000 feet,” says Phebe Meyers, ACES Naturalist Field School Manager. “We are thrilled to partner with the Aspen Skiing Company to bring this incredible event to our community for the third year in a row. This experience offers the opportunity to explore the universe with astronomy experts and enthusiasts, expanding listener’s horizon of knowledge.”
