Daytime Activities Nighttime Programs

Kitt Peak is very much alive during the daylight hours and offers a variety of activities to enjoy. During the summer, the mountain is a great place to beat the desert heat.  When the sun sets, our famous evening and overnight programs are a great way to spend  learning about astronomy and viewing the night sky. Discover the constellations in the sky, how to view hidden objects in the sky with binoculars, and view the deep sky objects with our telescopes. It is a great way to spend the evening with the family.

The Kitt Peak Visitor Center is your first stop on any visit and your springboard to informative daytime tours, nighttime stargazing and telescope viewing programs, fascinating exhibits, a terrific gift shop, and beautiful panoramic mountaintop views!
