The Kitt Peak Experience… Like no other

Kitt Peak Star-B-Q

Stargazers silhouetted at sunset Stars illuminate a BarBQ Conjunction of Jupiter, Venus & Mercury

Burgers, brats, dogs, music, stars. Bring an appetite, lawn chairs and WARM CLOTHES. Our barbeque will be followed by stargazing and telescope observing up until 9:30 PM. Bring your own telescope if you like, but we will also have some of our own.

Featuring a special conjunction of Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury in the evening twilight!

This is a MEMBER’S PROGRAM, but each member is encouraged to bring along one non-member as a guest. (An individual member may bring one friend along, a couple with a dual membership could bring two friends, and those with family memberships can bring along a guest family.)

5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The Kitt Peak Picnic Area (one mile below the summit)

COST: (a minimal fee to cover the food):

$5 per member
$10 per non-member guest


To register, call: (520) 318-8726

(limited to 50 people)


You may cancel at any time up to 48 hours prior to the program date without any penalty. Those who cancel less than 48 hours prior to the program date will be charged the full program fee (by this time we will have purchased the food). If we are forced to cancel the program ourselves, you will not be charged anything.

On the day of the program we will make a “weather call” and determine if the program will proceed as scheduled or not. Assuming the weather cooperates, the per-person fee will be charged automatically at this time. You will receive a copy of your receipt at check-in time. (Check-in will be at the picnic area.)

If a last-minute emergency or other situation comes up so that some or all of your group cannot make it, please let us know as soon as possible. It may save you money, and will allow us to fill the empty space with others from our waiting list.
