SPECIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE STAR PARTY MAY 15 - 9 pM

Join us for a special evening to see the rare blood moon during the lunar eclipse! We will meet in Torrey at 9 pm and head to our secluded location inside Capitol Reef National Park. Our knowledgeable astronomy guides will provide a fun star tour of the night sky, revealing constellations with lasers, and sharing stories from mythology and fascinating space science. Our telescopes will be set up to give you an up-close view of the red moon and star clusters. 

We will watch the full moon rise over the cliffs around 9pm as it begins to partially eclipse or go into Earth’s shadow. It will reach a full blood moon eclipse from 9:30-11 pm. This special event will include extended time for telescope viewing as well as local desserts and snacks.

Additional details

We’ll meet at the parking lot of the Rim Rock Inn at 9pm to head into the park. Please arrive on time, we can’t make everyone attending wait for you and we need to be at our stargazing location by the start of the total lunar eclipse. Our location in the park can be hard to find and cell coverage will be unreliable. You will not be given a refund outside of extenuating circumstances. Plan your dinner and travel arrangements accordingly.

After everyone has checked in, you’ll follow us in your own vehicle to our stargazing spot. You will have to drive about 1/2 a mile on a maintained dirt road, usually suitable for even sports cars to drive on (when affected by weather, we will shuttle you from a paved parking area to our location.)

We’ll keep you updated on any weather or cloud forecast that may affect our star party that evening. We’ll confirm the tour prior to departure.  We provide 100% refunds if canceled due to weather, or you can’t attend a modified stargazing time.

This tour is limited to 30 people. Book now to reserve your spot!

There is no bathroom at our location, so make sure to go before. We are prepared in case of emergencies, but there is little cover for you outside of the darkness.
