Nighttime Visit to the Titan Missile Museum June 14, 2014

Three times during the summer the Titan Missile Museum in Sahuarita, Arizona, has Moonlight Madness. From 5-9 visitors can take a 30-minute tour of the launch area, watch a Mad scientist demonstration and sample space ice cream The Mad scientist demonstration included seltzer rockets as well as informative education about how an ICBM works.. When we arrived for our tour at 5:20 the temperature outside was still over 100 degrees, by 6 pm the temperature had declined to a more manageable 98 degrees. In the future we will attend the event later. Other Moonlight Madness dates include: July 12, August 9 and September 13. Cost is $7 for adults and free for children 12 years and under.  For a more comprehensive history of the Titan Missile program please visit my December 2013 post on the museum..
