The Planetary Society creates and participates in events to bring the excitement of space exploration to public audiences. From our world-wide Planetfests to lectures in small-town libraries to hanging a solar-sail blade in Rockefeller Center in New York, we are constantly finding new ways involve our members in the excitement of space exploration.
NASA/JPL Ambassador John Conrad will give us his presentation on the Cassini-Huygens mission to the Saturn system. We'll learn what scientists have gleaned from the data about this beautiful gas giant and its moons.
March 3rd - 4th, 2019: be the ultimate space advocate. Join fellow members of The Planetary Society as we descend on Capitol Hill to speak for space science and exploration. Bring your passion for space exploration. We'll train you, schedule your meetings on Capitol Hill, and make you an effective advocate. It's fun. It's effective. It makes a difference.

The Planetary Society is hosting space scientists, experts, and partner organizations to highlight the future of outer planets exploration after the end of the Cassini mission at Saturn. This is a casual reception with short remarks by special guests. Complimentary food and drink is provided.
The Cassini Mission at Saturn has been one of the most exciting and successful in the history of planetary science. Now it is about to come to a climatic end as it plunges into the great ringed world. KPCC/Southern California Public Radio has teamed with The Planetary Society for a public celebration on Monday evening, September 18th, just three days after the grand finale.
If you can’t make it to an event along the path of totality, you can watch totality happen LIVE via slooh.com. Slooh is your interface to outer space. You can control online telescopes, watch LIVE streaming events, participate in the community and more. For the 2017 North American Eclipse they will be broadcasting totality live from the Elk Creek Campground in Idaho.
