North Carolina Statewide Star Party
Be a part of the North Carolina Statewide Star Party, a signature event of North Carolina Science Festival!
If you’ve never been to a star party or a skywatching session, here’s a time-lapse video that shows you the entire event, start to finish. This video was made by Chapel Hill astronomer Joe Pedit and is used with his permission.
Astronomy clubs, state and local parks, planetariums and nature centers host public skywatching sessions at dozens of sites across North Carolina during the Statewide Star Party. These are free, family-friendly events. You’re invited to look into the universe with us! We’ll provide the telescopes; you provide the curiosity.
The North Carolina Statewide Star Party became a North Carolina Science Festival initiative in 2013 and will return in 2014. Please check this page in 2014 to learn the exact date and time.
