Moon Movie Fest & a Show (Persied’s Meteor Shower)

August 10 @ 9:00 pm - August 11 @ 1:00 am

This will be the first ever movie night in Observatory Park. Based on a true story, The Dish takes a comical and fictionalized look at the 1969 space mission that marked mankind’s first steps on the moon and why NASA relied on a radio telescope in the middle of an Australian sheep farm to bring the images back to Earth. It was the top grossing Australian film in the year 2000. Rated PG-13 (brief strong language, social drinking & smoking).

Stay for a viewing of the Perseid’s Meteor Shower. While this isn’t the peak, there should still be plenty of shooting stars to see.
