Big Astronomy Toolkit from the Night

The Big Astronomy planetarium show will feature the incredible telescopes in Chile, known for their clear, dark skies. Just like these large telescopes, amateur astronomers seek dark skies for sharing the wonders of the universe with their communities. The topics featured in the Big Astronomy show also form the basis of our latest Outreach Toolkit!
