Event Details

Join us for another year of collaboration with the Peoria Astronomical Society as we celebrate International Moon Night at Northmoor Observatory. We will have a Moon Storytime (while it’s still light out!) and some fun activities (while supplies last!), and you will have a chance to look through the big telescope!  Peoria Astronomical Society members will be on hand to let us know exactly what we are seeing in the night sky and the view will change throughout the evening. Sunset is estimated for 7:15 pm.  The Northmoor Observatory is located in the Donovan Park on North Knoxville in Peoria.  Park in the main parking lot and walk approximately 500 feet south to the dome. Flashlights come in handy for the walk across the grass. Bring a blanket or folding chairs to sit on the grass outside of the dome. This event is free and all ages are welcome!  **Weather permitting** Please call 497-2143 with any questions.
