Town Creek Under the Stars

Event Description

Join us for a Spring 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, and an overview of sights to be seen this evening. Then, beginning at 8pm, site telescopes will be available, or bring your own, to observe the waxing crescent Moon, the constellations Leo and Cancer, and the Beehive Cluster. Participants should dress for the weather, bring a blanket or chair if you like, and enjoy the last astronomy program of the season. Free, registration required
