Calling all early risers! Join us for a pre-dawn walk at Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. In addition to our regularly spectacular sunrise, guests will be treated to a rare astronomical phenomenon; a planetary alignment. In the predawn sky we will see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn lined up across the horizon and visible to the naked eye.

Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

Minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a legal guardian at all times.

Walk-in’s welcome, but space is limited so registration is suggested.

Significant cloud cover, rain or heat advisory will cancel the event.
