Seeing the Universe
The 2020 North Carolina Science Festival will feature the Statewide Star Party as a signature event, thanks to support from the North Carolina Space Grant.
During the 8th annual Statewide Star Party, 36 hosts will offer public skywatching sessions across North Carolina on Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25, 2020. Star Party hosts include astronomy clubs, state and local parks, universities, planetariums, science centers, nature centers, and libraries. About 4,000 visitors and 200 STEM professionals and volunteers are expected to participate.
This year’s Star Party theme is “Seeing the Universe.” Hosts will lead hands-on activities from the Star Party kit that will help visitors understand how telescopes and light help us learn about the universe.
