Master Astronomer Program

The Master Astronomer Program is a 40-hour hands-on workshop where community members can come and learn more about Southern Utah’s amazing dark night skies. This program was developed by Cedar Breaks National Monument with hopes to allow participants to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the night sky and astronomy. Participants will be able to learn through many hands-on experiences including learning how to operate a backyard telescope. Classes will be held in an SUU classroom as well as Kolob Canyons, Cedar Breaks, and Ashcroft Observatory. Come explore the night sky! See the full schedule below.
