    Blog - Explore Scientific — Starlight Festival 2018

    Starlight Festival at Yerkes Observatory

    What a crowd! What a good time!

    We were amazed by the big turnout and blown away by how blazing hot it was. The forecast was for rain and thunder storms, but somehow, it avoided us the whole weekend. The event was incredible and filled with amazing speakers, STEM events, vendors, food trucks, a beer tent, hot air balloons, rocket launches, tours of the observatory and glimpses through the 40" refractor. 

    In continuing the celebration, Yerkes has extended the opportunity to tour and view through the Great and Famous 40" Refractor.
