Ever wanted to get up close and personal with the stars? No, not those stars — I mean Betelgeuse and Rigel and Sirius. Those are some of the most notable stars in our night sky, and you’ll get a chance to see them in all their magnified glory at tomorrow night’s star party, hosted by the Space Telescope Science Institute.

Johns Hopkins has some of the most advanced space-viewing technology in the world, but usually it’s kept for the scientists. A star party lets regular old astronomy enthusiasts peek through the eyepieces of some pretty intense telescopes. You can also get a personal tour of the Morris W. Offit space telescope, which is epic.

The event runs from 8:30 to 10 PM tomorrow. To register, click here.
