The S.A.G.E. Planetarium, located at 38060 20th Street East, on the Northeast corner of East Avenue R and 20th East, is host to a number of Astronomy presentations each month as well as the monthly club meetings of the Antelope Valley Astronomy Club.

Visiting the Planetarium is free for the Palmdale School District, including head start. All groups outside the PSD pay $125 per show and also need to make arrangements with Jeremy.

The SAGE Planetarium is open, free to everyone, three times per month. We hold a Public Night in which we show regular school shows and a Group Night in which groups large and small may come and not worry about how large of a group they bring. Both are free, however, reservations are required. For reservations and show dates and times, call Jeremy at 266-7646. The third time the public may come and visit the planetarium is at the regular AVAC meeting held on the second Friday of every month at 7 PM.

For more information and to schedule a show visit the Palmdale School District website

Announcements

 

 

SOLAR ECLIPSE ON AUGUST 21. The eclipse will not be total from the Antelope Valley but will still be impressive at 71% of total.  Because so many of our members are traveling to the path of totality, WE WILL NOT BE HOSTING A LOCAL EVENT.   There will be no event at the SAGE Planetarium. Information on the local times can be found here: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/usa/lancaster

Since we are still getting inquiries, we want to clarify that the Antelope Valley Astronomy Club has exhausted our supply of eclipse glasses. We do not have any more for distribution to the public.

The Antelope Valley Astronomy Club has been handing free eclipse glasses out at some of our events since Memorial Day weekend and we have no more to give.  As of our meeting at the SAGE Planetarium on Friday 8/11, and our event at Prime Desert Woodland Preserve on Sat 8/12, we had handed out approximately 1,000 to the community.

Most online retailers have exhausted their supplies as well and we do not know where you can get them.
