Moon Over Monona Terrace


One of our most popular programs, Moon Over Monona Terrace combines the talents of the Madison Astronomical Society (MAS) with the striking views from the Monona Terrace Rooftop, topped off with crossed fingers for a crystal clear Madison evening!

Young and old alike are invited to view the moon and other celestial objects through a multitude of different telescopes. The evening will begin with moon viewing only, and will progress to different objects as the sky darkens. Activities include short kid-friendly presentations on the moon and other celestial phenomena, and a kid’s fun zone with educational games and prizes! Fun for the whole family!
