Star Party Astronomy Event
August 10, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
In the 19th century Reverend Robert Burwell occasionally led his students up Occoneechee Mountain to observe the heavens. Imagine the night sky with no electric lights to diminish the brightness of the stars! We can’t offer you that experience — but right on the Burwell Lawn, Jerry will pass out copies of the August sky chart and give viewers a look at the skies through his large Meade telescope.
Bring your own chair or blanket (and maybe some bug repellant ). Families are welcome!
Grab a bottle of water, stop by the Whit’s Frozen Custard stand, set up on the lawn, and settle in for the show.
