AstroDay - Astronomy Day in Hilo, Hawaii

A Celebration of Astronomy & Hawaiian Culture

16th Annual AstroDay - May 6, 2017

Mahalo to everyone who volunteered and attended AstroDay 2017--it was a great success! Special thanks to our hosts the Prince Kuhio Plaza and to IHOP, who provided yummy refreshments to our volunteers. 

AstroDay and International Astronomy Day

AstroDay coincides with Astronomy Day, an international grass-roots movement to share the joy of astronomy with local communities. On Astronomy Days, thousands of people throughout the world will have the opportunity to see what amateur and professional astronomers learn, explore and share about their science. AstroDay in Hilo features exhibits, demonstrations, activities, and entertainment throughout Prince Kuhio Plaza. Over 30 science, education, and community organizations will participate in the festivities to create a well-rounded and exciting day of celebrating knowledge!
