The St. Louis Astronomical Society hosts public Star Parties at our First Friday events. Weather permitting, the St. Louis Astronomical Society and the Science Center will set up a number of telescopes and be on hand to answer visitor questions. Regardless of the weather outside, indoor events are scheduled for each Star Party and held inside the Planetarium's Orthwein StarBay. These events feature our popular program "Live Sky Tonight” where we feature what is currently visible in the night sky including constellations, planets, current Moon phase and any other special astronomical events such as meteor showers or comets, etc., using our Zeiss Planetarium Model IX projector.
