Town Creek Under the Stars: Return of Wintermaker

Event Description

Join us for an evening beneath one of the last great dark sky sites in the North Carolina piedmont! The event kicks off at 6pm with the auditorium presentation “What’s Up?” – an introduction to the planisphere, an overview of sights to be seen this evening, and some of the lore surrounding them. Then, beginning at 6:30pm Site telescopes will be available, or bring your own to observe Venus, the Orion Nebula, and constellations including Orion, New Fire, and First Slim One. Participants should dress for the weather and may bring a red light to help them see in the darkness. Chairs and blankets welcome!  Free, registration required at eventbrite
