Special Programs

Come witness a Total Lunar Eclipse

Sunday January 20 from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. (weather permitting)

Sadly, cloudy skies will prevent our planned viewing of the lunar eclipse out on Astronomy Hill. However, it will be streaming live here:

9:36 p.m. Jan. 20 – penumbral eclipse begins
10:33 p.m. Jan. 20 – partial eclipse begins
11:41 p.m. Jan. 20 – full eclipse begins
12:12 a.m. Jan. 21 – maximum eclipse
12:43 a.m. Jan. 21 – full eclipse ends
1:50 a.m. Jan. 21 – partial eclipse ends
2:48 a.m. Jan. 21 – penumbral eclipse ends

Join us on Astronomy Hill to view both the eclipse and the “super wolf blood moon”.
Join us for all or just part of this great event. Please note: Monday the 21st is Martin Luther King Day, so most schools are closed- meaning the little ones can sleep in.

    $4 per New Pond Farm member, with a maximum of $16 per member family, and $6 per non-member, with a maximum of $24 per family.
