What Parents are Saying

“We attended all three programs offered at the McDonald Observatory with our favorite being the star party. All their programs were great, but they made much more sense because we had attended Amy’s class. It’s been so exciting for me to watch the kids’ knowledge in action.”

Vanessa Clark

“Taryn had astronomy class tonight. She was excited to spot Jupiter, Venus and 3 moons! If you are in Austin and interested in Astronomy, we can’t recommend Starry Sky Austin enough!”

“Amy facilitated an astronomy night for our group of 12 students and it was fantastic. The children loved the viewing of the planets and stars and the instruction provided by Amy. We highly recommend her for her knowledge and teachign style.”

Janet Scarborough Civitelli

When class was over, one of the students was walking with me to help take telescopes and equipment back to my van and said, “Now every time I look up at the sky I see the Big Dipper!” She felt proud of herself and did so great working with the telescope. I love seeing girls get excited about space!”
