Sekrit Eclipse Viewing Party
Telescopes, lasers, Pink Floyd, fire...
Being in the path of a *total* lunar eclipse is awesome; the next one that’ll be this good in Texas isn’t until May 16th, 2022... Serious! Look it up!
Come out to Sekrit Theater and make a memorable night of it! We will have telescopes, fires, the place lit up, and you can lounge around listening to Dark Side of the Moon while enjoying the eclipse. We will be projecting an ambient light show with extra lasers. Bring a blanket, bring a picnic, BYO-whatever. This is a leave-no-trace event. Pack it in; pack it out!
***This event will sell out, tickets are limited**** You must buy them in advance through eventbrite. Bringing a telescope gets you free admission, but please contact us in advance so we know you’re coming! Volunteers get free admission. Please email aW5mbyB8IHNla3JpdHRoZWF0ZXIgISBjb20= if you’re interested.
PARKING: Please rideshare or bike if you can. If you can prove you did this, we’ll give you a ticket for free popcorn. If you must drive, please DO NOT park on Perry. Park on Jain towards Stuart (near the park). There is room there for plenty of cars and it doesn’t inconvenience our neighbors.
8 PM: Doors open. A printed eventbrite confirmation will help things go quicker with our volunteers at the the front. Explore the space, take some selfies, bring binoculars, stake out your viewing spot, look through our telescopes, lounge around and enjoy whatever drinks and snacks you brought.
9:30 PM: We will start playing Dark Side of the Moon.
10:41 to 11:43 PM is duration of the total lunar eclipse.
It’s gonna be clear and COLD. Sorry! We put in a request to the weather gods for the mid-50s, but it was denied this time. We will have fires, but you’ll have a much better time if you arrive prepared.
Layers! Layers! More layers!
Bring two yoga mats or a plastic tablecloth to go under your blanket. Trust me, soggy blankets are no fun and not warm at all.
Warm beverages in a thermos are way more enjoyable than cold beer in a cooler when it’s cold. And speaking of coolers, the outside temperature and your refrigerator's temperature will be about the same; any snacks that need to stay cold will stay cold without your help.
Sleeping bags are cozy, especially when you zip two together. You could bring an air mattress if you’re feeling ambitious.
