ABOUT THIS EVENT
Come explore the cosmos with us at TLC’s Three Bears Nature Preserve in Creedmoor! Take a hike through our very own solar system scaled both to the palm of your hand and on a quarter mile trail. When you are done dodging asteroids and learning about each of the planets, take a pit stop at each of our activity tables to learn all about the stars, planets, and some of the telescopes that we will be using to view the night sky. When dark begins to fall, we will play some nighttime games and end the night with a few guided demonstrations from Raleigh Astronomy Club to share constellation stories and an opportunity to look through real telescopes!
This is a free event but pre-registration is required.
This site is equipped with restrooms with accessible stalls. The main parking area is about a 0.15 mile walk from the main event area, however, there will be closer parking available for those who need it. This is a completely outdoor event and we suggest you bring chairs and blankets, extra layers to keep warm, and a few snacks and a water bottle. We can’t wait to see you among the stars at our Three Bears Nature Preserve!
NCSciFest's annual Statewide Star Party is made possible through the generous support of the NC Space Grant.
