ABOUT THIS EVENT

Come explore the cosmos with us at TLC’s Williamson Farm and Nature Preserve in Raleigh! 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 telescopes and what we might just be able to find by the end of the night. When dark begins to fall, we will play some nighttime games and end the night with a few guided demonstrations from experts to share constellation stories and an opportunity to look through a real telescope!  

This is a free event but pre-registration is required. Accessible portable toilets will be available near the parking lot and the event will take place completely on trails made of crushed concrete. 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 Williamson Preserve!
