Come to one of 40+ Statewide Star Parties on April 5!posted Monday March 25, 2013
The North Carolina Science Festival opens on Friday, April 5, with dozens of skywatching sessions -- the first-ever Statewide Star Party -- at locations throughout North Carolina.
The sessions are hosted by local astronomy clubs, science centers, parks and other organizations. As with all skywatching sessions, they are dependent on clear skies and good weather.
The Statewide Star Party kicks off two weeks full of exciting science events held throughout North Carolina! For a complete list of all North Carolina Science Festival events, visit the Festival website and check out the online calendar by date -- most of the star parties are on the evening of April 5, but one is during the day and another is later in the Festival calendar.
