Star Party

Part of the 2015 Statewide Star Party held in conjunction with the N.C. Science Festival, this free event will take place on the American Tobacco Trail at the White Oak Parking Field, under the stars. All ages and skill levels are welcome to attend. There will be some fun, hands-on activities early in the evening. As the sun goes down, we will begin to observe a variety of celestial objects, both inside and outside our solar system, through telescopes and binoculars. Bring your curiosity, a water bottle, chair or blanket, your own viewing instrument (if you have one), and dress for the weather. This program is open to all ages. Register for this free event by calling 919-387-4342. Meet at the White Oak Parking Area, 1305 White Oak Church Road, Apex.
