If traveling through the North Kaibab Ranger District on June 9 through 16, you are invited to come to experience the dark skies of the Kaibab Plateau during this year’s annual Star Party, hosted by the Kaibab Lodge, Kaibab National Forest, and the Saguaro Astronomy Club (SAC).
The 28th annual Grand Canyon Star Party will be held June 9-16 on the South and North Rims of Grand Canyon National Park.
With a night sky that seems to stretch across the entire western hemisphere, Grand Canyon is the perfect spot for star gazing and night observations.
TUCSON - Look up at the sky once the sun goes down. How many stars do you see? If you live in a city or suburb, you probably see very few.
