  • With the rapid loss of dark skies to light pollution receiving national attention, Maine is increasingly being referred to as one place “that still has stars.”

    One of the premier night sky events on the eastern seaboard, featuring a full schedule of events. With workshops, nationally recognized speakers and hands-on experiences, there truly is something for everyone from families to the serious amateur astronomer. Help us celebrate the starlit skies of Downeast Maine through education, science and the arts.
