University of Arizona: Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Virtual Star Party

As a stay-at-home alternative to our popular SkyNights program SkyCenter StarGazing, we are now offering virtual private star parties!
Available by advance reservation, this 90-minute interactive program is built on the success of our in-person SkyNights programs and features live views through our 32” Schulman Telescope – along with an engaging and educational conversation with our astronomy outreach professionals.
Using our specialized astronomical CCD camera, we will live stream images to your screen that are similar to what you would see in the eyepiece. In addition, we will share high resolution, long exposure color images of objects that have been created through the Schulman telescope with you.  What makes this experience exceptional, beyond the views of star clusters, nebula, and galaxies invisible to the unaided eye, is that you will have a private Zoom link through which you will have direct interaction with our observatory staff.
As we are streaming this only to you, you can share the link with family and friends who can join in from anywhere on Earth! It is truly a private experience where you can converse casually with our staff, ask questions, or even ask us to point the telescope at objects of your choosing.
This 90-minute program is scheduled to start at 7:30 pm MST (Mountain Standard Time), and with advanced coordination, we are flexible on the start times. Please contact us at 520-626-8792 or email us at mtlemmon.skycenter@gmail.com for any questions about this program! 
We will reschedule for poor weather and seeing conditions. Cancellations must be submitted 48 hours prior to StarParty.
