For which ages is this program designed? This event is open to all ages, and is considered a public event. It is not an educational program in the same line as other educational programs hosted at PARI in the past. This opportunity provides access to the dark sky at our campus for amateur astronomers attending this event. Some will be visiting to see PARI and others will be visiting to simply view the sky. As an educator, I would recommend families bring their upper elementary age children and older. There will be lots of personal equipment and people moving around in dark conditions in the evenings. As long as families with children come prepared, they will have a wonderful time.
