Join the Frosty Drew Astronomers for a night under spooky Halloween skies. We will have views of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, and more in our telescopes. On the campus we will have activities to celebrate astronomy and Halloween. Loads of candy will be available as well throughout the night. As the witching hour approaches we will direct our telescopes towards planetary nebulae - the ghostly remnants of dying stars, as we celebrate the departure from the lighter half of the year and plunge into the darker half.

We will open the Observatory, Science Center, and Sky Theatre at 6:00 p.m. The Observatory will be in full out Halloween mode with frightful sights, spooky sounds, and candy available for all who visit. Starting at 6:15 pm, and again at 8:15 pm. sit with our Sky Evangelists under the willow for a kid friendly story time. At 7:00 pm, and again at 8:15 pm, the Sky Theatre will host the original 1938 War of the Worlds radio broadcast by Orson Wells accompanied by select images shown on screen as well as additional props. A scavenger hunt will be available for kids (and adults), designed to take you around the campus.

Dig out that old costume, put on your mask and come out to the creepy woodlands of Ninigret Park to celebrate the Eve of All Hallows... If you dare...
