Town Creek Under the Stars: Binoculars Edition!

Event Description

This event is limited to ticket holders.  Join us for an evening beneath one of the last great dark sky sites in the North Carolina Piedmont and don’t forget to bring your binoculars!  Bask in the glow of the first-quarter Moon, Mars, Jupiter, & Saturn as we guide participants on a tour of the heavens.  Bring a lawn chair or blanket and be prepared to relax beneath the firmament, enjoying the view as we hunt for passing satellites and discuss visible constellations.

•    Participation is limited to 45 members. 
•    Participants will be allotted socially-distanced viewing spaces. 
•    Families and friends can be grouped together as desired. 
•    Hand sanitizer will be available. 
•    This is a binocular-based program & participants will need to bring their own equipment; telescopes will not be shared at this event.
