Public Outreach at Caltech

Astronomers at Caltech are keen on communicating the wonders of astronomy to you! Our events are organized by Dr. Cameron Hummels and staffed by volunteers from the Caltech Astronomy community including students, postdocs, staff, and faculty. We are engaged in several programs with local schools (PUSD and LAUSD), and we organize astronomy-themed events for the Pasadena and Los Angeles communities. You can keep updated on current and future outreach events by checking our page often or following us through our Contact Page.

If you have questions about astronomy in general, we suggest attending one of our events, or contacting Ask an Astronomer. We also have several telescopes in the Cahill Rooftop Observatory that are available for all members of the Caltech and JPL family.
