ABOUT THIS EVENT
Join us for some after-hours sky-watching in the Swamp! Participants will enjoy some hands-on activities followed by a 2-mile wagon ride through a scale solar system. Then we will hike about a mile to the sky-watching spot, where the Back Bay Amateur Astronomers will have telescopes set up so we can view the stars and planets (weather conditions permitting). We may be able to see or hear some of the nocturnal animals that live in the Swamp while we are out as well!
Limited to 40 participants due to wagon seating availability. You must stay for the entire event, as we will be on the west side of the Canal. Please register through the link below:
NCSciFest's annual Statewide Star Party is made possible through the generous support of the NC Space Grant.
