Family Space Science Night

May 18 at 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm


Join us for an evening of fun, hands-on science – all about outer space! This program is especially designed for families with kids that can’t stay up as late, but still want to look through a telescope and learn about the wonders of the night sky.  Come for one activity or stay for them all!

7 PM – 7:25 PM: Scale-model Walk Through our Solar System

7:30 PM – 8 PM: Totally Telescopes –  Investigate how a telescope works, and then look through a telescope at the Moon

8:15 PM – 8:40 PM: Marvelous Moon – Listen to folktales about the moon, and take one final telescope look at our neighbor in the sky

8:45 PM – 9:15 PM: What’s Out Tonight? – Take a short, staff-led tour of the stars and planets

Telescopes may be available after the program. Availability is subject to staff/volunteer availability, weather conditions, and crowd size limitations.


Park programs occur on the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Google Maps Pin here. Park in the gravel lot and follow the walkway next to the restrooms to the seating area. Since seating is limited, you may want to bring a chair and/or blanket

All programs will be cancelled in the event of rain or thunder.

Telescopes will not be available in the event of significant cloud-cover.

We ask that all visitors please leave pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

Check the Clear Sky Chart or Astrospheric for 48-hour forecasts of cloud cover and viewing conditions.
