Looking for some summer night fun? Start with IMAS popular Stars & Skies Parties as we explore the evening skies above Rio Grande Valley. IMAS Stars & Skies Parties encourage our community to learn about space science and technology through special activities and programs designed around night sky observations, current space events, and much more. This year IMAS will be hosting the Stars & Skies Parties on June 8th, July 6th, and August 3rd from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
Everyone is invited to participate! The Starts & Skies Parties are included with general admission. This year IMAS will continue the tradition with special Science On a Sphere presentations, its popular Inside the Dome-Planetarium shows, and hands-on science experiments from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Join IMAS for the final part of the Stars & Skies Parties, stargazing outside on the IMAS front lawn from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
IMAS invites you to bring out your lawn chairs, telescope, or binoculars, so you can share your astronomy knowledge with others or use IMAS’ equipment as you observe under dark, star-filled skies. If you know nothing about astronomy, bring your curiosity!
Each party is a unique and new adventure!
On June 8th, we will explore the planets as we will travel through the solar system, learn more about what makes our planets unique, discover the composition of Saturn’s rings and explore the storm on Jupiter!
