Join staff and volunteers from the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society (CHAOS), and Raleigh Astronomy Club (RAC) for skywatching at Dix Park.

Look through telescopes, facilitated by Morehead staff and dedicated volunteers, at a variety of objects in the sky including Jupiter and Saturn.

To set the stargazing mood, the Triangle Sax Ensemble will be playing some tunes! Bring a blanket or chairs so you can relax under the stars.
