Jasper Planetarium reaches beyond the stars, OFFERING PRIVATE GROUP EXPERIENCES TO galaxies beyond

Jasper, Canada (March 16, 2017)

Since 2015, The Jasper Planetarium has been feeding the curious minds of Rocky Mountain star gazers with special events, digital planetarium tours, and guided telescope viewing opportunities. Now, for the first time ever, they are opening their doors and broadening their horizons by offering specialized tours for private groups and events.

In addition to the regular structure of general-public tours, the Jasper Planetarium now also offers the option to focus content based on the interests of each group. Whether it’s for a corporate team building retreat or an educational field trip for a class of eager young students interested in experiencing the Real Canadian Rockies, the knowledgeable staff at the Planetarium will cater to the specific space exploration needs of each group.

“A tour of the universe is the last thing most people expect to encounter at a conference . But here in the Jasper Rockies, we're making that a reality,” says Peter McMahon, manager of the Jasper Planetarium. “It's been a blast starting to work with private groups. We've realized what a unique experience we're able to offer here in Jasper under the stars.”

While regular tours are still scheduled on weekend evenings throughout the winter, these specialized group tours can be scheduled to suit the event. With solar gazing telescopes available, even daytime galactic adventures are possible.

Nestled in the 11,000 square kilometres of Jasper’s Dark Sky Preserve, designated by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, the Jasper Planetarium offers a unique viewing experience in our 35-seat air-supported domed theatre and outside for our hands-on telescope experience with a live astronomy expert.
