Reach for the Stars

Temple University is focused on ensuring the health and safety of our community members, and campus and Arboretum visitors. The university is taking several measures to keep everyone safe amid the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

On March 12, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced that all Montgomery County schools, including universities, would be closed for two weeks. In accordance, Temple University Ambler closed on Thursday, March 12.

Regretfully, Temple University Ambler and Temple Ambler EarthFest Presents must take the necessary measure of postponing or rescheduling, where possible, all events and programs through the end of the spring semester.

7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Ambler Campus Parking Lot, Meetinghouse Road

Join us under dark skies to celebrate the stars and the planets!

We will look for various objects in the sky and learn how to tell one from the other. We will also highlight the importance of dark skies to animals and the environment and learn how you can help keep the skies dark.

Can't tell the difference between local neighbors Mars, Jupiter and Saturn from distant stars in the night sky? That’s all right! Temple Ambler is hosting this special stargazing event in cooperation with the Delaware Valley Amateur Astronomers and the Bucks-Mont Astronomical Association. All skill levels are welcome!
