Moon Viewing At The Tallest Bridge Observatory In The World
This weekend the moon will look even bigger as you're high in the sky.
The Penobscot Narrows Observatory will be open late this weekend. The Observatory will take stargazers to quite the vantage point, 420 feet up. In less than a minute the fastest elevator in the state will shoot visitors up to a 360 degree view of the moon, and night sky.
The event is 8-10PM Saturday. Tickets are sold the night of the event for $5 per person. If there's rain or clouds the event will be canceled. To find out if the event is canceled call the Fort Knox office at 469-6553 that night for a recorded message.
On Saturday the moon will be nearly full, as the full moon is Sunday.
The Penobscot Narrows Observatory is currently the tallest public bridge observatory in the world. While other bridge observatories have marginally taller towers, the Penobscot Narrows Observatory viewing platform is slightly higher than others around the world.
