Events & Outreach

LASP hosts regular seminars for scientists and occasional public events. Please visit this page regularly for updates.

International Observe the Moon Night

LASP’s IMPACT lab will once again host a sky-viewing party for International Observe the Moon Night. Members of the public are invited to come to the courthouse lawn at the Pearl Street Mall on Saturday, October 21 from 6:00-9:00pm. There will be a variety of telescopes as well as several IMPACT scientists to help give you a guided tour of the Moon, planets, and other celestial objects, as well as answer questions.

This free event is part of a worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation and understanding of our Moon and its connection to space science, exploration, and human culture. This annual celebration connects scientists, educators and lunar enthusiasts from around the world.

Space science research is exciting! LASP’s Office of Communication Management conveys what’s happening in our lab and across the universe through a regular newsletter, tours, and special events. We also partner with many groups on the CU Boulder campus who organize a wide variety of outreach programs.
