Oct. 5 is Astronomy Day in Houston. This event is not to be missed!

Normally, this event is held south of Houston. This year it will be held at our local Insperity Observatory. We will be open from 3-10 p.m. and will have indoor presentations, outdoor presentations, solar observing, spectroscopy, nighttime observing with the telescopes in the observatory plus addition telescopes in the parking lot, laser tours of the constellations, tours of our astronomy in art installations, door prizes, and children’s activities.

We hope you can join us for this unique opportunity for the festivities and viewing the celestial wonders. Parking will be in front of the elementary school and across the street at The Luke Church, plus additional remote parking at the Humble Civic Center. The observatory is located at Jack Fields Elementary, 2505 S. Houston Avenue, Humble. Visit humbleisd.net/observatory and astronomyday.net for more information and directions.
