Astronomy at Grace Farms | Lyrids Meteor Shower

Thursday, April 23, 2020, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

With the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and community in mind, Grace Farms temporarily closed to the public on March 9 and remains closed. All programs scheduled during this time will be cancelled or rescheduled.

Although Grace Farms is temporarily closed, the work of Grace Farms Foundation continues. 

The Grace Farms Relief Fund for Connecticut, which was established with private donations totaling $2.5 million, to address the critical shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health care workers in Fairfield and New Haven counties. Grace Farms Foundation has also organized the Grace Farms Alliance Against COVID-19, an effort comprised of more than half a dozen partner organizations to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Learn more about what we are doing to help serve our community during this time and our COVID-19 response effort.


Explore the Lyrid Meteor Shower and spring’s constellations with an evening of stargazing led by New Canaan High School Planetarium Director Tim Haag. Learn about constellations like Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Leo, Bootes, and Hercules, and join us as we attempt to catch a glimpse of the Lyrid Meteor Shower.


Astronomy at Grace Farms encourages visitors to discover the beauty of the stars against dark skies. With 80 acres of open space located at the one of the highest elevations in New Canaan, our Astronomy programs offer incredible viewing opportunities complemented by the celestial expertise of Astronomer Tim Haag and Nature Initiative Director Mark Fowler.

Please bring your binoculars. Visibility is dependent on the weather.
