Astronomy @ Home


Astronomy @ Home was created by the ASP for families of all ages and launched with our Live Storytime and recently added Family Activities - updated ASP popular activities to do at home! Storytime, with it's final installment in August, 2021, was a monthly live reading and now includes an archive of past readings and activities. It's all part of making science accessible at any time!





Live Monthly Readings

In 2020, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific started a Free monthly, Live Storytime for children and their families. ASP staff and special guests read our favorite illustrated children’s books about the sky and space, and shared fun and easy activities and sky observations that families can do together at home. If you missed out on this engaging experience with a young one, you’ll be able to watch the archived video or try out the activities at anytime.

You won't want to miss out on Our Final Live Storytime - Tuesday, August 24 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET

Stars, written by Mary Lyn Ray and illustrated by Marla Frazee. This picture book encourages children's minds to wander and wonder, where in nature can stars be found throughout the year.

Our final installment of ASP's popular Live Storytime will end with two original songs about stars and constellations.
