Astronomy Night at Serpent Mound 

Saturday, September 7th, 2019 – 6:30 to 11 pm 

Event is free, however there is an $8 per vehicle parking fee.  This event is weather dependent.

Join us for a night filled with fun and education.  There will be a variety of professional presentations talking about the cosmos.  As the sun goes down and skies darken, visitors will be given a tour of night sky with Dean Regas and the staff of Cincinnati Observatory.  Here is your chance to view the planets and stars through large telescopes, with professional astronomers available to answer your many questions.   You will also be able to tour the world’s largest Effigy Mound by night, as park staff will light up the pathway encircling this ancient monument.  A food concession table will be available offering coffee, tea, hot chocolate, brownies, cookies, etc.  This should be a truly meaningful night!
