Town Creek Under the Stars

Event Description

Join us for an evening beneath one of the last great dark sky sites in the North Carolina piedmont! The event kicks off at 7pm with the auditorium presentation “What’s Up?” – an introduction to the planisphere, an overview of sights to be seen this evening, and some of the lore surrounding them. Then, beginning at 7:30pm, Site telescopes will be available, or bring your own, to observe the Orion Nebula, Hayades Star Cluster, and constellations including Gemini, Canis Major, Taurus & the Drinking Gourd. Participants should dress for the weather.  Free, registration required.  Register here.  Contact the Site with questions at towncreek@ncdcr.gov, or 910-439-6802
