Come out and join a park ranger on Sunday, September 27, from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm at Chellberg Farm and enjoy a fall evening watching a total lunar eclipse of the “Super Moon.” When the moon’s orbit brings it to its closest point to the Earth it is called a “Super Moon” because it can appear to be 14% larger than normal. This moon will also turn a reddish hue as a result of passing directly behind the Earth into its shadow. During the evening, visitors can take turns watching the moon change through the park’s telescope. During the evening, a short night hike will be offered for those who want to wander in the near total darkness of the eclipse. Try not to miss this event; it won’t happen again until 2033. Bring a flashlight for the walk back to the parking lot after the program.

Park and meet the ranger at the Bailly/Chellberg parking lot located at 618 N. Mineral Springs Road in Porter, Indiana. The program site will be a short walk from the parking lot to the farm yard.
