Telescope Experience

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

*** You'll even have the opportunity to take pictures of some of these objects with your phone! ***

This activity is available for purchase exclusively at the Skytram Lower Station
