Virtual Star Party Using the 32” Willard Eccles Observatory Telescope

April 8 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

As part of International Dark Sky Week 2021, Utah State Parks is partnering with the University of Utah to hold this virtual dark sky event! Even though the U of U’s Willard Eccles Observatory sits atop a mountain nearly 10,000 feet in elevation in rural southwestern Utah, this telescope can explore the skies remotely! We will use this 32” telescope to zoom around the universe and capture images of deep-space objects like galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae. Join us on Thursday, April 8th at 9:00 PM!
