Moonlight Madness

Friday, March 3rd, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday, September 22nd,  9 p.m. – 11 p.m.


This event is for ages 16 and up only

Join us as we examine a familiar friend in the sky – the moon!  Identify mountains, lunar maria, craters within craters, and possibly even the elusive X formation. Learn where the Apollo missions landed, and take pictures with your own cell phone of what you see.

This two-hour event starts with a lecture presentation on the moon’s formations.  You’ll get to feel a piece of lunar rock before we head upstairs to our 36” Gueymard Telescope to take a look at these wonderful objects through the telescope.

Capacity: 16 participants, 16 years and up only.  Snacks, water and coffee are included.

Advance ticket purchase is required via our online box office, as tickets will not be available for purchase onsite. A paper or electronic receipt is needed for entry. In the event of overcast skies, tours and talks by our experts are still available. Brazos Bend State Park’s entry fee is included.

**Please note that entry to Brazos Bend State Park ends at 9:30 p.m. nightly**
