The Kitt Peak Experience… Like no other
Mother Nature is once again putting on a spectacular fireworks show! Travel far away from those annoying city lights to view spectacular meteor showers under the pristine dark skies of Kitt Peak, YOUR National Observatory! Festivities begin late and stretch into the wee hours of the morning as we observe one of Nature’s most spectacular cosmic shows. Learn about meteors, comets, meteor showers, and touch an actual piece of an asteroid. Refreshments will be provided.
Adults and families with children 8 years or above are encouraged to attend.

Monday, August 12

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
You may cancel at any time up to 48 hours prior to the program date without any penalty. A $20 per person cancellation fee will be charged for those who cancel less than 48 hours prior to the program date. If we are forced to cancel the program ourselves, you will not be charged anything.
On the day of the program we will make a “weather call” and determine if the program will proceed as scheduled or not. Assuming the weather cooperates, the per-person fee will be charged automatically at this time. You will receive a copy of your receipt at check-in time.
If a last-minute emergency or other situation comes up so that some or all of your group cannot make it, please let us know as soon as possible. It may save you money, and will allow us to fill the empty space with others from our waiting list.
Call (520) 318-8726 to register.
Call (520) 318-8736 if you have any questions.
Or email the Program Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org (It’s easier to reach me via email than by phone.)
