Town Creek Under the Stars

The Milky Way stretches high above the north guard tower at Town Creek Indian Mound State Historic Site

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 Sirius, Betelgeuse, Aldebaran, the Beehive Cluster and constellations including Orion, Cancer, and Taurus. 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!  Free, but registration is required at the "online access" link.
