Morehead Planetarium: Skywatching at Jordan Lake

December 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

Skywatching sessions are very informal and family-friendly. Each session is scheduled for two hours, but you can arrive and leave at any time during the session. During the evening, you might do any of these things:

  • Peek through telescopes for up-close views of celestial objects
  • Take a laser-guided “star tour” of the night sky
  • Learn where to look for major constellations
  • Listen to legends told by ancient cultures about the constellations
  • Ask the astronomers for answers to all the astronomy questions you have!

Please note: Because of Earth’s rotation, some sky objects may be visible during only part of a skywatching session, depending on the times they rise and set.
