3rd Annual Southwest Astronomy Festival



The Kaibab Band of Paiutes and Pipe Spring National Monument

Celebrate the Skies during the 3rd Annual Southwest Astronomy Festival

On Friday through Sunday, September 27th through 29th, celebrate the skies at the Kaibab Indian Reservation and Pipe Spring National Monument. Everyone is invited to participate. Tribal staff from the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians and rangers from Pipe Spring National Monument are looking forward to sharing information with visitors under a star-filled sky.

On Friday September 27th, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM AZ (2:00 PM to 5:00 PM UT), there will be a solar telescope set up at the visitor center. Come and have a close look at the sun and learn some Paiute perspectives about its significance. Interagency Annual Passes will be accepted for monument entry; all others will be $10 per person age 16 and older.

On Saturday September 28th, 7:00 PM AZ (8:00 PM UT) there will be a star party at the tribal campground, 1/4 mile north of the Pipe Spring Visitor Center. Hear traditional Paiute songs sung by tribal members, sip on warm drinks, and munch on fresh cookies. Once darkness falls, attendees will have the opportunity to look at objects through a telescope.

On Sunday September 29th, 8:00 AM AZ (9:00 AM UT) join our dark sky intern and park rangers to paint your own version of Vincent Van Gough’s Starry Night at the Pipe Spring Visitor Center.

Visitors should bring their own flashlights. No fees will be charged for the evening event.
