The night sky above the Carolinas is constantly changing; have you ever wondered what lies overhead? Join us on the first Friday of each month to discover how our sky has changed and to stay up-to-date with the newest space missions. Take a live tour of the current month’s constellations and explore various topics ranging from the earliest history of astronomy to the latest advancements in the field. This program lasts approximately one hour.

 

Friday, April 5th at 7 PM

Throughout the month of April, the chance of seeing shooting stars will grow greater as we welcome two meteor showers to the evening sky. We expect the changing seasons with certainty each year, but for our ancient ancestors, it was the appearance of bright stars like Regulus and Spica that signaled the changing weather. Among the changing constellations, Mars still shines at sunset, while four additional planets will be visible in the early morning. Join us on Friday, April 5th, as we discover these sights and more in “Our Carolina Sky.”
