See the wonders of the daytime sky through telescopes
Daily, 12 noon - 5 pm (weather-permitting)
Skytram Lower Station, May through October
Join experts from The Jasper Planetarium for a look at giant flames on the Sun, the planet Venus, and maybe even a view of the Moon...All in a 10-20 minute tour at the base of the mountain.
Enhance your Skytram experience at the Lower Station before or after your flight, where a knowledgeable astronomy expert will show you a variety of different views, which may include:
- huge looping solar prominences, giant solar flames 100 times the size of Earth
snaking filaments dozens of Earths long on the fiery surface of the Sun
spicules and perhaps a rare "solar tornado" like distant fires, frozen in time
the cloud-tops of Venus- perhaps the most extreme planet in our Solar System
when its orbit makes it visible in the afternoon, views of craters and mountains on the Moon
This activity is available for purchase exclusively at the Skytram Lower Station
