Flagstaff, AZ

Astronomy on Tap Flagstaff is a free night of engaging science presentations, interactive trivia, and prizes! Topics range from telescopes to black holes and galaxies. Presenters will include astronomers from area observatories, universities, and other scientific institutions. 

AoT Flagstaff was started in March of 2019 by Lowell Observatory staff with the dream of bringing the awe and wonder of astronomy to the Flagstaff community.

AoT Flagstaff occurs on the first Thursday of each month @ Southside Tavern in downtown Flagstaff.
