A Night with the Summer Stars at Lavender Hill Farm
July 8, 2019 @ 10:00 pm - 11:59 pm$10
Join us at Lavender Hill Farm for star guidance and stories on July 8th. This event will take place immediately following a special star themed Monday Movie Night. Come for the movie and stay for the stars!
Enjoy a rich evening of storytelling under the stars with Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams, your engaging guide to naked eye observation of the summer’s night sky wonders. On July 8th, the First Quarter Moon of the season will be near the star Regulus, which is at the heart of the Lion. In this position, the Moon activates the Lion and lends itself to an evening of wonderful stories about the high constellations of the summer, and taming dragons and serpents with courage and compassion.
Time: 10 PM – Midnight (Join us for Free Movie Night Monday before the event! 7 PM Bonfire and 8 PM Movie in the Barn)
Cost: $10 per person
Ages: 8 & Up
Tickets: available now!
Please Bring: Blankets or camp chairs. Meet in front of the barn. In the event of inclement weather, this event will take place in the barn. “If you cannot see the stars, you can be the stars!”
