7 pm - 11 pm
Join us for a fun summer evening at the Ashton Gardens to explore the intricacies of the solar system and learn about planets, stars and constellations.
A wide variety of science-based activities will be held throughout the Garden during the early evening (7 pm – 9pm). After the sunlight fades (9 pm – 11pm), together we’ll study the sky through the telescope lens and hear amazing, cultural stories of the importance of the night sky.
Telescopes and Night Sky Observations: With representatives from Clark Planetarium and Salt Lake Astronomical Society, observe the night sky closer than ever before. What can you find when you look closer?
Paper Rockets: Use the engineering process to create rockets that can soar through the sky!
Astronaut Training Course: Do you have what it takes to become an astronaut? Test your skills on the astronaut training course.
Origami Starfinders: Fold and decorate a Star Finder Game. Learn your way around the night sky by finding some of the constellations.
Punch Out Constellations: Bring the constellations to your own hands by using pins and paper.
