Moon Party

Join us Saturday, November 5th, 2016 at 6 pm at Three Peaks Recreational Area to look at the features of the moon.

We will have our large telescope out and will be able to see a few other things as well. We will be able to see the Hercules Great Cluster, the Ring Nebula, a myriad of globular clusters, and the Andromeda Galaxy!

Make sure to dress warm as the temperature can drop low that Saturday.


This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited and it is free of charge. However, donations help us buy better equipment for the community, and are always deeply appreciated.

We recommend coming right at 6 pm, wrapping up for warmth, and bringing a blanket or chair for additional warmth and comfort. We’ll provide the telescopes.

Directions to Three Peaks from Cedar City can be found here.

We may be at Pavilion 1 or the “visitor’s center” that night depending upon attendance. The Visitor’s Center area is right off the side of the road before you enter Three Peaks Recreation Area. So if you don’t see us here:

You will see us here (Pavilion 1):

Disclaimer: We stay until everyone leaves, however in the event of inclement weather, we will be there at start time (in this case 6 pm), but if we are rained/snowed out and no one shows up, we typically only wait one hour from start time to call it quits.
