Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Mount Olivet Conference and Retreat Center. We’ll have giant telescopes aimed at Jupiter, Saturn, star clusters, galaxies, and more. Live video telescopes will also be available. Get to know constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and others. Great constellation mythological stories will also be featured!
Popcorn, hot chocolate, and bottled water are included. Concessions like wood-fired pizzas, candy, and soda will be available for purchase from 7-8pm. Some outdoor chairs will be available, but feel free to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. This event is held with limited light so guests should be self-reliant.
$15 per person – includes program, snacks, and bottled water.
Children 3 and under are free. Max cost per family is $50.
