Astronomy for Everyone

Start Date:



8 p.m.

Lake James State Park and Campground

Lake James State Park Superintendent Nora Coffey will be co-hosting with the Catawba Valley Astronomy Club for a night of star gazing. Learn some basic star gazing tips and take home your own star chart. There will be telescopes and binoculars set up for viewing the night sky, but feel free to bring your own if you have them. Folding chairs and bug spray are also recommended. We will meet in the upper parking lot of the Paddy’s Creek Area starting at 8:00 p.m. to get oriented and cover some tips for the evening’s events before it gets dark. Register by calling the park office at 828-584-7728.
