We’re sad to report that PhilaMOCA is being forced to temporarily close. All events below will be relocated, please check back for updates or check our Facebook page. We’ll be back as soon as possible!
Tonight’s event has been RESCHEDULED for Thursday, September 19, 6 – 10pm!
We were so excited to bring astronomy, science education, arts, and outdoor workshops to the park tonight but the weather has other plans in mind with an 80% chance of thunderstorms. Hope you can join us next week for a trip through the galaxy!
