Hopping on a plane to one of America’s most well-known landmarks might not be in the cards for everyone. So, it’s a good thing you can virtually stargaze from the Grand Canyon this week!

The Grand Canyon National Park and Grand Canyon Conservancy are allowing visitors from all over the globe to enjoy the stars during the park’s 30th annual Grand Canyon Star Party. Unfortunately, the in-person event had to be canceled due to social distancing restrictions. However, the park still wanted astronomy lovers to be able to take part in this historic event.

The Star Party runs from June 13-20 on the Grand Canyon National Park’s Facebook page. Two videos will be posted each day. In the first, experts will offer commentary, and in the second, astronomers will attach cameras to their telescopes and explore the stars.

If you missed any of the first nights, the videos are still available on the Facebook page. If you want to do some stargazing from the comfort of your couch, check it out.
