Walk to the Moon and Back

Explore the park as we walk east, watching the rising moon and later retrace our steps along the former runway. Learn about the moon, its impact on us and our planet.  Find out more about other planets in our solar system as well. Total distance is about 1.5 miles with nearly level terrain. 

Feel free to bring a small flashlight for the walk.

Following the program the park will have telescopes available for an up close look at celestial objects. Telescope availability is subject to time and crowd- size limitations.

Pre-registration is required to attend this Program and spaces are limited.

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 to 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.
