Hawthorn Hollow and the Heide Observatory invite you to celebrate the 2023 passing of the Sun into the northern hemisphere and the first equal length day and night for this year.

Join us at the Heide Observatory on the of Saturday, April 1, starting at 6:00 pm for a March equinox party and simultaneously come experience the current largest public-serving telescope in southeastern Wisconsin.

Your ticket will include: a walk to the restored prairie to view the sunset and look at the planets currently in the west through telescope and binoculars, a guided tour through the meadow solar system model, and views of the sky through our largest telescope along with a night-time sky tour of other celestial objects. Beverages and snacks will be included and the excess proceeds for the event will benefit the ongoing mission of the observatory.

In the event of cloud cancellation, a backup date is scheduled for Saturday, April 15.
