National Park Service: Star Party

Events include an outdoor evening program nightly, just outside Grand Canyon Visitor Center — at 8 pm, followed by telescope viewing in the large lot behind the Visitor Center.

To attend the evening programs, arrive before 8 pm to be sure of getting a good view of the screen, or arrive after dark and head straight to the telescope lot.

Park rangers offer constellation tours at 9, 9:30, and 10 pm. The slide show, constellation tours, and at least one telescope are wheelchair accessible.

The closest accessible parking is in lot 4. Lots 1 through 3 offer additional parking with a short walk.

During the Star Party, the Village Route (blue) shuttle bus runs every half-hour until 11 pm sharp.

The South Rim Star Party is sponsored by the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association.
