Skywatching at Observatory Park

October 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Celebrate International Observe the Moon Night at Gaithersburg’s Observatory Park. Hands-on activities and tours of the International Latitude Observatory will be available. The park will be dark, but please do not bring a flashlight; bring a red light as it will be less intrusive to other watchers. Red cellophane will be available to cover any white light flashlights. Also adjust the brightness of electronic devices.

Limited parking for those with accessibility tags is available onsite. Parking is also available at the field at the corner of DeSellum & Rt. 355 – 2 blocks from the park. No amenities available on site. Alcohol is not permitted at events in City parks.
