Northern Illinois University's Summer Under the Stars is a series of free community programs presented by NIU STEM Outreach and the Davis Hall Observatory throughout the summer. Our programs help amateur star gazers and armchair astronomers learn more about all things space. All programs are family friendly and open to the public.
