Blackout: Night Sky Festival


August 12, 2017 – August 13, 2017
5 PM – 12 AM

The following event is being organized by the UBC Astronomy Club and Museum of Anthropology.

Explore our connection to the stars during an evening of arts and astronomy.

Inspired by the global dark sky movement, Blackout brings together storytellers, musicians, artists and astronomers to share their relationships to the skies. Join us to witness the peak of the Perseid meteor shower and explore the museum until midnight during this all-ages event.

You’ll have the chance to peer into telescopes, make your own star lantern and experience an experimental art installation that reimagines the constellations. Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy stargazing to a soundtrack of downtempo, ambient and tribal beats, punctuated by live music and throat singing.


Adults – $10
Youth & Students – Free
All-Ages / Licensed
