Sunday, January 20th, 2019
Lunar Eclipse Viewing at Sandstone Ranch
8:00pm to 11:30pm / Sandstone Ranch, Larkspur Colorado / Space is limited, Please RSVP

Join Douglas Land Conservancy and Douglas County Open Space as we gather and watch the Moon slip into Earth’s shadow and turn a deep red color. We will meet at Sandstone Ranch’s main house for hot cocoa and Moon Pies. There will be a presentation from amateur astronomers on the night sky. Then we will head outdoors where telescopes and binoculars will be set up for viewing.  Let’s keep it dark. No flashlights or phone lights. If you have them, please bring headlamps with red lights or a head lamp covered in red cellophane.
Inside activities begin at 8:00pm. Please arrive close to that time so as not to have the headlights on your car disturb the viewing.
Dress for the weather. Dogs are not allowed at this event.
Lunar Eclipse Timing:
Partial eclipse begins: 8:34 pm
Total eclipse begins: 9:41 pm
Totality ends: 10:43 pm
Space is limited. The hike is free, but a $10 per person donation to DLC is suggested.
Our events fill quickly. If the event is full, please contact
Amy Graziano at [email protected] or 303.688.8025 to be added to the wait list.
