Skywatching at Dix Park (Raleigh) with Morehead Planetarium

November 6 @ 7:00 pm

As part of the American Indian History Month series of events, join staff and volunteers from the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society (CHAOS), and Raleigh Astronomy Club (RAC) for skywatching at Dix Park. Facilitators will share sky stories from different cultures including American Indian constellation stories.

Look through telescopes, facilitated by Morehead staff and dedicated volunteers, at a variety of objects in the sky including Jupiter and Saturn. To set the stargazing mood, the Triangle Sax Ensemble will be playing some tunes! Bring a blanket or chairs so you can relax under the stars.

Registration: This event is free and tickets are not required. Registration will help plan for attendance and update registered participants of inclement weather changes.
