Hello and welcome to John Glenn Astronomy Park Program Reservation System! Program availability is based on the number of parking spaces that we have available. Currently, our limit is 70 cars. However, you may bring as many people with as you can fit in your car!

In order to keep things safe and fun, we require that you reserve your spot ahead of time. Please look through the available programs and choose the one that best fits your schedule. Please note that programs are weather dependent. We will send out an e-mail by noon on the day that a program is cancelled. So, be sure to watch for it if the weather looks cloudy.

We will occasionally add additional programs if there are interesting celestial events (comets, meteor showers, novae etc,.), so watch this space.

Before you come be sure to download the JGAP app. Our app, the JGApp, teaches you about the many features of our plaza, and how to use them to appreciate the movement of the Sun and Earth, the position of the stars, and the scale of the bodies in our solar system.
