On Friday, April 27th, twenty different venues around Philadelphia are offering a free night of stargazing as part of the ten-day, city-wide Philadelphia Science Festival.

Awbury Arboretum will host their “Star Party” from 8 to 10 p.m. in partnership with the Chew and Belfield Neighbors Club and Falomi Club/Campfire USA. Amateur astronomers will guide participants in a study and appreciation of the stars, planets, and constellations. Participants will head home with their very own star wheels to help navigate the night sky.

Star-gazing begins at 8:20 p.m. outside the Francis Cope House. The event is free, and healthy snacks will be provided. For more information, please visit or call 215.849.2855.
