Logistics & Registration

Opening Reception

You may not know it, but Flagstaff is an Astrotourism Destination! Flagstaff was named the world’s first International Dark Sky City in October 2001.

As a special treat, Lowell Observatory has agreed to host our Welcoming Reception on Monday, October 16th. The observatory overlooks historic downtown Flagstaff, which is 128 years old, older than Arizona itself! Lowell Observatory houses advanced and historic telescopes, including the 5th largest optical telescope in the continental United States! Exhibits include the 24” Clark Refractor Telescope, the Giovale Open Deck Observatory, the Pluto Discovery Telescope and the 24” Dyer Telescope. Join us for a special night of stargazing and catching up with colleagues!

Our reception will include hors d’oeuvres and drinks, as well as access to the Observatory. This event will take the place of scheduled tours for this year’s Symposium.
