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.
Due to restrictions on the number of people that can be in groups, we have integrated a temporary ticketing system. Tickets can be acquired online only! A link to acquire tickets will be posted on Frosty Drew event page on the day before the event, if weather is acceptable for viewing. We frequently post links on the day of the event so we have the most accurate forecast. Please DO NOT attempt to circumvent the ticketing process by using the standard donation form on our website. THAT WILL NOT GET YOU A TICKET OR ACCESS TO THIS EVENT! A ticket is required for admission
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...
