Early Morning Lunar Eclipse Viewing

Start your day off with an up-close look at the lunar eclipse! Take advantage of an early-morning moon viewing opportunity that won’t come around again until March 2025. Stop by any time between 5 AM and 6 AM to observe the earth’s shadow as it passes over the moon, and even take a close-up look at the eclipse through a telescope. Hot coffee will be provided, remember your reusable mug!

This drop-in morning program will also feature information about the causes of lunar eclipses, as well as information on viewing the November night sky.

Registration is strongly encouraged for this event so that we can be sure to prepare enough material for everyone. Register using the green Register button to the upper right. 

Programs are conducted at the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Follow the walkway from the public program parking to the seating area. Since seating is limited, you may want to bring a chair and/or blanket.

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.

All programs will be cancelled in the event of rain or thunder. All registrants will receive an email by 3 PM on Monday, November 7th confirming the status of the program.

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