Join us at our winery estate in Elgin, AZ from 5:30-10:00PM on Sunday, Jan. 20th for Astronomy Night and a Full Lunar eclipse of the “Wolf Moon”. Enjoy a guided narration of the night sky from former Kitt Peak Guide, and local astronomer, Chuck Dugan as we view the night sky through Binoculars, and 8” and 11” telescopes. Your ticket includes a BBQ meal and glass of wine from our tasting bar. We’ll have our outdoor fireplace roaring, but be sure to dress warmly. Tickets are $45/pp and are available on our website.
Prepare to be amazed as you soak in the beautiful sights of our solar system and our galaxy through Binoculars, an 8 inch and an 11 inch telescope! Believe it or not, many objects in the night sky can be seen better through Binoculars!
Here’s a quick agenda (subject to change):
6pm to 7pm: Chuck and Co. will be Demonstrating for guests how the Lunar Eclipse works. It is an active activity that they can take part in!
7:30pm to 8:30pm: We’ll be looking at the moon through all our instruments, and some other bright stars in the sky, as PRELIMINART eclipse is going on.
8:30pm to 9pm: Chuck will offer the Lunar Eclipse Demonstration again, as we prepare for TOTALITY.
9:30pm to 10pm: As TOTALITY begins, we’ll watch visually and with instruments. We’ll also be able to view a couple FAINTER objects during FULL ECLIPSE.
