Gateway to the Stars

Posted July 02, 2019

Each month in Gateway to the Stars, we explore the sky's seasonal highlights and events in astronomy and space flight. This month, we'll round-up some of our famous summer constellations, such as the members of the iconic Summer Triangle, and the famous Scorpius. Identifying these constellations will also help you to find some other great summer sights: The bulge of our Milky Way galaxy stretches up from the south during the summer months, and the bright and beautiful Jupiter and Saturn will be easy to spot nearby!

Join us for a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. These upcoming events are designed to engage our community and inspire wonder and learning about not just past achievements, but also the future of space discovery and exploration.
