Through Our Telescopes: Moon Watch
July 3, 2023 at 9:30 pm - 10:15 pmFREE
Explore the diverse landscape of our moon, explore highlands, volcanic plains, and moon mission landing sites. Join park staff in viewing lunar natural features and discovering where moon landings took place among them.
Under the guidance of our volunteers and staff, embark on an amazing telescope tour of the moon’s surface.
No pre-registration required. Telescopes available on a first-come, first-serve basis for the time listed. Availability is subject to staff/volunteer availability, weather conditions, and crowd size limitations.
Park Programs occur on the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. 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.
While you may still observe on your own at the park without attending a program, all visitors should arrive before dark.
We ask that visitors to the Night Sky programs to please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.
