Big Astronomy Day

Community Event

It takes big teams of diverse people from around the world to enable big discoveries and make big astronomy work. On Astronomy Day 2023, will you participate in our community event?

Show the Big Astronomy Film at your facility sometime during the month of April 2023. Keep in mind April 29th is Astronomy Day so this would be a great time to show the film and use one or more of our hands-on outreach activities.

  • The film is free or very inexpensive to license, and available in English, Spanish, German, and French. Get it here
  • You can show the fulldome film, or screen the HD flat screen version
  • The film is available for you to show any time

Support the film showing with additional activities!

Use the tabletop activities in the Big Astronomy kit for additional learning opportunities that day.

Do you work with Blind and Low Vision (BLV) audiences - or would you like to? Apply to receive a set of hands-on materials to make your public engagement more accessible. Receive a small toolkit of activities around the astronomy themes of the show: why are telescopes in remote areas like the Chilean mountain tops; learning about multiwavelength astronomy; and exploring the connections of many cultures' understanding of the sky. You will also soon find information here on the best practices of working with BLV audiences in informal venues! To apply for a kit, please fill out the short form here.
