Town Creek Under the Stars: A Night with Cronus

Event Description

This FREE program is offered in conjunction with #TenDdaysOfUwharrie, the official #NorthCarolinaOutdoorFestival! The evening begins in the auditorium with our "What's Up!" presentation at 6:30pm, providing information about what to look for that night and a little folk lore associated with it. Then, join us outside for an evening beneath one of the last great dark sky sites in the North Carolina piedmont. Site telescopes will be available, or bring your own to observe the great, ringed Saturn. Notable constellations include the Skeleton Bird, the Revolving Woman, and Nanahuatzin. Participants should dress for the weather and may wish to bring a red light to help them see in the darkness. Chairs and blankets welcome! Registration is required via the "Online Access" link.
