Navajo Bridge Star Party

  • Navajo Bridge Interpretive Center 1000 Us Hwy 89a Marble Canyon, AZ, 86036 United States (map)

Culture and science meet above the Colorado River in Marble Canyon with dark sky activities and daytime fun. Join amateur and professional astronomers in exploring the skies on the historic Navajo Bridge, 470 feet over the Colorado River! Telescopes provide an up close look at celestial wonders, or take in the bigger picture with classical Greek and traditional Navajo constellation viewing.

Learn more about the importance of dark skies on the Colorado Plateau, discover something new with traditional Navajo stories and cultural knowledge, become a junior ranger, or just take in the stunning scenery of the Vermilion Cliffs and the infinite universe.
