Town Creek Under the Stars

Orion, champion of the winter sky.

Event Description

Join us for an evening beneath one of the last great dark sky sites in the North Carolina piedmont. Site telescopes will be available, or bring your own to observe the crescent Moon, Orion Nebula, and constellations including Orion, Taurus, and Pleiades. Participants should dress for the cold and may wish to bring a red light to help them see in the darkness. Chairs and blankets welcome!
