Spooky Views - A Halloween Stargazing Experience

  • Join the Frosty Drew Astronomers for a night under spooky Halloween skies. We will have views of the near Full Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, and more in our telescopes. In the Sky Theatre we will have activities to celebrate astronomy and Halloween. Loads of candy will be available as well throughout the night. As the witching hour approaches we normally direct our telescopes towards planetary nebulae - the remnants of dying stars - though the bright Moon will keep us away from the ghostly remnants as we celebrate the departure from the lighter half of the year and plunge into the darker half. We will open the Observatory and Sky Theatre at 6:30 p.m. The Observatory will be in full out Halloween mode with frightful sights, spooky sounds, and candy available for all who visit. So dig out that old costume, put on your mask and come out to the creepy woodlands of Ninigret Park to celebrate the Eve of All Hallows... If you dare...
