Our Urban Park Rangers will be your guides to the solar system, discussing the science, history, and folklore of the universe. Astronomy programs feature the use of telescopes and binoculars to observe specific astronomical events. Jupiter will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. The best time to view Jupiter and its moons!
See some of the park's most iconic places, like Bethesda Terrace and the Lake, and learn about its history, design, and magnificent restoration of these landscapes.
