Star Night: Meteors

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Enjoy the Garden at night! Bring your own chairs or blanket to spread out on the lawn and look up at the night sky. A telescope will be set up at the top of the Tandy Floral Terraces, with Garden staff on hand to facilitate viewings of stellar, planetary and deep sky objects. 

Only red flashlights are encouraged, to improve our night vision. We are limiting the number of tickets for this event, so please register soon if you’re interested in coming. If the weather forces us to cancel this event, we will offer an alternate date or a refund.  Any announcement regarding cancellation will be made by noon on the event day.

The Leonid meteor shower will peak around Nov. 17. On this night, the moon will be 5% full, providing darker skies for celestial viewing.

TICKETS for ages 3 and up are $10 per person for Garden members and $15 per person for non-members.  No tickets will be sold at the door. 

SAFETY: Please wear a mask when inside the visitor center and restrooms and anytime outside when physically distancing from others is not possible.
