Clubs, planetaria, observatories, and museums will host public viewing events, telescope workshops, hands-on activities, and presentations to increase awareness about the profession and hobby.
Astronomy magazine and Celestron unite with astronomy organizations throughout the country for the year's biggest star party.

Celestron donated 50th Anniversary FirstScopes for each venue to give away and also provided a NexStar 6SE for the grand prize — Astronomy will pick the grand-prize winner from names collected at each venue.
