Statewide Star Party

Join stargazers across North Carolina as we look to the sky during this annual statewide event! Explore the night sky during a live star show inside the planetarium and then step up to the museum’s Green Roof and use a telescope to see these celestial sights for yourself (weather permitting). Planetarium staff can direct you to the night’s most interesting sights and a variety of hands-on activities will be available for stargazers of all ages.
All programs are subject to change. While we make every effort to present the shows as listed on our website and in our activities calendar, equipment issues may prevent their presentation and we may need to substitute shows. If you're planning to see a certain show, we recommend that you call our Reception Desk at 704.866.6900 to confirm presentation status.http://www.schielemuseum.org/happening/398-statewide-star-party.html
