Gateway to the Stars – FREE

The night skies can offer us a mesmerizing look at what is beyond Earth – constellations, planets, moons, the sun. Luckily, Gateway Arch National Park can help you see the night skies more clearly while learning about astronomy and space! Registration for each event is recommend.

Join us for Gateway to the Stars, a free stargazing series on the Gateway Arch grounds. This event is free and open to all ages, and features an interpretive talk followed by telescope viewing of the moon and stars led by Gateway Arch National Park Ranger Rick Fefferman and volunteers from the St. Louis Astronomical Society.
