The Fine Print

Expiration varies. Amount paid never expires. Limit 2 per person. Valid only for option purchased. Private parties require reservation, call 913-438-3825.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $12 for admission for four to a Star Bright Saturday night program ($24 value)
  • $75 for private star party for 10 ($150 value)

Every Saturday night, May–October, visitors can head to the astronomical society at dusk to hear presentations, attend tours, and (if the skies are clear) view the stars. Private parties provide a more exclusive experience that’s personally guided by an experienced, amateur astronomer.

Astronomical Society of Kansas City

Away from the lights of the city, the Powell Observatory's powerful telescope offers a glimpse into the galaxy. But the Astronomical Society of Kansas City predates that telescope by 50 years, enlightening the earth-bound since 1935 about the greatest mysteries in existence.

  • Size: measured in how far you can see, about 15 quintillion miles
  • Eye Catcher: the 30-inch Ruisinger telescope, which is available for public use every Saturday night, May–October
  • Permanent Mainstay: Powell Observatory's other telescopes—a 16-inch and a 12.5-inch Dobsonian telescope, and a computer-controlled 12-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope
  • Don't Miss: the chance to talk to society members for advice about investing in a telescope, or share stories about eclipses, auroras, or meteor showers

Was a great and fun evening!
Janette P. · November 17, 2015
Interesting and such a beautiful place to be on a summer night.
Nancy P. · August 2, 2015
Hard working volunteers make it a fun night - lots of kids there. Be sure to check the weather forecast on their website first as a clear night is best. Take a folding chair as you spend most of the time outside. Looking at the moon was especially fun but moonless nights are also great as then the stars are brighter.
