09nov6:30 pm9:30 pmHeard After Hours: Lunar Phases & More


Event Details

Why does the moon disappear?  Does it really turn blue?  Can a cow jump over it?  Who’s “the man in the moon”?  From time immemorial humans have been enthralled by this natural nightlight that appears, changes position and shape, and disappears, all within the space of a month.

Join us for Heard After Hours: Lunar Phases & More, as we use the Magic Planet to explore the above questions and more. The evening will also feature a telescope station, an open exhibit hall, and access to parts of our private 289-acre wildlife sanctuary.

$19/non-member; $16/Heard Museum Members* (Age 3 years through adult). Pre-registration is required for this event.

Closed toed shoes, long pants, and bug spray are recommended. Participants will be outdoors for at least an hour. Children ages 18 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
