ABOUT THIS EVENT
The Davidson College Physics Department invites you to a Star Party to be held on the campus of Davidson College the evening of Saturday, April 22, 2023 from 6:00 to 9:30 pm. As always, all our stargazing events are free and open to the public!
Come explore the wonders of astronomy and the night sky with your family and friends by joining us for the three events described below. Please stay for all three, or feel free to come for just one or two. As a host for the NC Science Festival’s annual Statewide Star Party, our theme for all events is “Full STEAM Ahead,” a celebration of the intersection of science and the arts.
- 6:00 – 7:30 pm: Activity fair, featuring family-friendly demonstrations, crafts, and activities. Location TBD.
- 7:30 – 8:30 pm: Public lecture on the campus lawn, topic and speaker to be announced soon.
- 8:30 – 9:30 pm: Public stargazing on the campus lawn, featuring telescope observations and guided tours of the Moon, stars, galaxies, nebulae, and planets. Bring a blanket and relax while you take time to simply look up.
