This is a one-of-a-kind science adventure for Girl Scouts! Fall asleep under the stars where the weather's always perfect. Explore science in a fun, exciting environment. After participating in a “Science Live!” you’ll eat dinner, play a game and observe the night sky with telescopes… then fall asleep in the planetarium under a cloudless "sky" of beautiful stars! The next morning you'll wake up, eat breakfast, participate in a hands-on activities and watch a planetarium show before going home.

The Sky's the Limit!

Night Owl Overnight

Cadette Night Owl Badge overnight -- Jan. 17, 2014

What better place to stay up late than the planetarium where the stars always shine bright? You can earn the Girl Scout “Night Owl” Cadette Badge when you join us for a night of sky watching with telescopes and nocturnal hunting on UNC’s campus. You’ll also meet an astronomer, make light-up accessories, watch a show in our Fulldome Theater and more! With these activities plus dinner, a campfire snack and breakfast, this event is sure to be a real HOOT!
