Event Series Event Series: Gibbous Moon & Planet Watch

Gibbous Moon & Planet Watch

July 29, 2023 at 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Gibbous moon is nearly full! Take a journey to the moon as we explore some of it’s fascinating features through a telescope. From highlands to volcanic plains, the moon has a diverse landscape. Join park staff in viewing these natural features and discovering where lunar landings took place among them. After viewing the moon we will take a look at a visible planet!

Telescope availability is subject to time and crowd-size limitations.


While you may still observe on your own at the park without attending a program, all visitors should arrive before dark.

Programs are conducted at the Night Sky Viewing Area. Follow the walkway from the public program parking to the seating area.

The park asks that visitors to the Night Sky programs please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

If the sky is unfavorable for stargazing, an alternative program may be held.

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

Visitors may want to check the Clear Sky Chart for 48-hour forecasts of cloud cover and viewing conditions.
