People we attract to the Starlight Festival are science and astronomy enthusiasts from all walks of life. Families with young children and young adults attend because of the unique, entertaining and educational value of the event. The attractions and venues also speak to educators who want to learn more and share their experience with their students.

The festival is promoted on all social media outlets, TV, and radio to help ensure a healthy turnout. Further, the holiday weekend time frame and the beauty of Big Bear Lake itself lay a solid foundation for a successful event.

The Starlight Festival provides a rare opportunity to tour the Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO). The BBSO is located on the north side of Big Bear Lake and home to the 1.6 meter clear aperture solar telescope – one of the largest in the world. The instrument provides a better understanding of dynamic storms and space weather, which has dramatic effects on Earth. The location is optimal due to the clarity of the sky and the presence of a body of water. Since the lake’s surface is almost 7,000 feet above sea level, the BBSO sits above a significant portion of the atmosphere allowing for an amazing experience.

RTMC offers visitors of the festival the chance to explore the latest developments in amateur and commercial telescope making. And, through presentations covering observing, festival-goers can learn how to get started in astronomy.
