Full Moon Viewing At Observatory

PROSPECT — The Friends of Fort Knox will be staffing the Penobscot Narrows Observatory on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 8 to 10 p.m. to offer visitors an opportunity to view the area in the moonlight.

This will be the only time this season that the observatory will be open during a full moon.

Admission to the moonlight viewing in the observatory is $5 per person and tickets may be purchased the evening of the event. Clouds or rain will result in cancellation.

The Penobscot Narrows Observatory, located at the Fort Knox state historic site, is the tallest bridge observatory open to the public in the world.
