Our Carolina Sky

 

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, June 7th at 7 PM

The month of June brings with it the official start of summer and many familiar constellations will be climbing high overhead after sunset. Sagittarius the Archer chases Scorpius the Scorpion through the stars, while the summer Milky Way is making its first appearance and providing wonderful views of the galactic center. Several planets shine brightly this month, including the King of our outer solar system, Jupiter, which will be at its closest to Earth during the summer months.
