Stargazing on Pensacola Beach

Discover the greatness of the night sky on beautiful Pensacola Beach. The Escambia Amateur Astronomers’ Association will offer free star gazing at the Gulfside Pavilion. Stargazing will be held on a Friday or Saturday and will start at sunset at varying times

throughout the summer based on daylight. The times listed are approximate.

Volunteers will set up nearly 20 telescopes ranging in strength and size from duplicates of Galileo’s original telescope to today’s incredible

large-scope devices for the public to take a peek at wonders such as Jupiter, the Milky Way and other galaxies.
