Moon Festival and Nighttime Stargazing


An image of the moon captured through a telescope while stargazing.

Friday, July 19

Festival 11 am – 2 pm; Stargazing 8 pm – 11 pm

Join the celebration – the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing!   Join a NASA Ambassador to imagine what it might be like to live on the moon, listen to an expert docent talk about NASA’s past (and future!), try stellar crafts and snacks or read a space-related book to our PAWS therapy dog team; it all equals “spaced-out” fun!

If the weather permits, be sure to come back in the evening from 8 – 11 pm for stargazing with volunteer astronomers from the HMNS George Observatory.  Just look for telescopes on the lawn on the south side of the museum and take your very own flight of fancy to the stars.

Festival included with general admission.
