Join New Pond Farm Education Center and astronomers from Ridgefield's Discovery Center to gaze through the telescopes at the waxing crescent Moon’s seas (mare) and craters, including Mare Tranquillitatis, where Apollo 11 landed 50 years ago. Astronomers will also point out and discuss various Winter constellations, galexies, and more.
Note: Families are invited to a special preview in the Learning Center classroom at 6pm. This mini-lesson will give participants, especially children, a better understanding of what they will be viewing out on the hill.
Please bring a flashlight for the walk from the parking area to the observatory, and binoculars, if you have them.
This program is $4 per New Pond Farm member, with a maximum of $16 per member family, and $6 per non-member, with a maximum of $24 per family.
