Join us for our final stargazing program of the year. We will search for the ghosts, goblins and monsters of the sky and try to spy Algol, the demon star! Best of all, we'll celebrate International Observe the Moon Night, a worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation, and understanding of our moon and its connection to space science, exploration, and human culture. We'll also learn about flying dragons, horses, and whales.

During the indoor portion of our program from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m., we will learn the constellations and answer questions about the galaxy. If the weather is clear, from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. we will spend some time outside viewing the cosmos through "time machines" (telescopes) provided by Westminster Astronomical Society (WASI). Feel free to bring your own telescope! We will assist with setup and focusing as needed. Wear sturdy shoes as some night hiking is required to get to the viewing field. This program is eligible for the Model B Junior Ranger Program. Signup is encouraged.
