About Yuri’s Night
Yuri’s Night is an annual event that typically has hundreds of parties around the globe (and beyond!) centered around April 12, the anniversary of the first human spaceflight and the first launch of the space shuttle. These events celebrate all that humanity brings with us as we explore the cosmos: music, art, science, culture, and each other! Local groups, science centers, museums, NGOs, and other non-profit groups independently produce events worldwide. We use space to bring the world together, to empower the greatest parts of who we are, and give vision to where we are going.
We look forward to post COVID when we can again host an in person annual Beyond Blue Aerospace Yuri’s Night event.
