Flora Borealis

Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m., Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 20
,

Summers in St. Louis are no picnic, what with the brutal heat and oppressive humidity. At night conditions improve a bit, and that's the time to get outside and experience the city. The Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; www.mobot.org) takes full advantage of the nocturnal respite with Flora Borealis, a nighttime-only special exhibition. Thanks to the artistic and technical brilliance of AVI Systems Inc., a section of the garden is temporarily transformed into a new experience with active lights, moving images and sounds that alter and enhance the familiar landscape. Tickets for Flora Borealis are $10 to $25 and are sold for specific time slots each night (Thursday through Tuesday through August 26). While you're waiting for your scheduled time you can take advantage of MoBOT’s new tented biergarten, which features live entertainment on select nights. $10-$25

Compton Hill Water Tower Full Moon Viewing

Mon., Sept. 24, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

The first full moon of autumn rises on Monday, September 24, and if you want to really get a look at the old girl, there's no better view than from the top platform of the Compton Hill Water Tower (1900 South Grand Boulevard; www.watertowerfoundation.org). The full moon tour takes place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and it will take your breath away — it's 198 steps to the top. But what a reward for all that huffin' and puffin'. Admission to the tower is $5 cash, and the platform is limited to 25 people at a time, so there may be a wait. The moon ain't going anywhere, so just be patient. $5 cash
