Staunton River State Park
Mon, Oct 12, 2020 - Sun, Oct 18, 2020
Join members of the Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society for the fall Star Party. Astronomers from across the country converge on the park each fall to peruse vendors' offerings, learn from guest speakers and presentations, and take advantage of the area's exceptionally dark night skies.
Check-in begins at noon on Oct. 12, and the Star Party continues until noon on Oct. 18. Registration fees required. The event is free and open to the public on Oct. 16 from 8 to 10 p.m.
Mingle with amateur astronomers to learn about and view planets, stars, nebulae and galaxies. Dress for the weather and bring a flashlight, preferably one with a red lens. (Red filters will be provided for those who don't have a red lens.)
- Check the website. Free day on October 16 from 8-10 p.m.
