2018 North Carolina Statewide Star Party

During this 6th annual Statewide Star Party, astronomy clubs, state and local parks, universities, planetariums, science centers, nature centers, and libraries will host public skywatching sessions at 37 sites across North Carolina on Friday, April 20, and Saturday, April 21, 2018. About 4,000 visitors and 200 STEM professionals and volunteers are expected to participate.

This year’s Star Party theme is “Anyone Out There?” Star Party participants provide the curiosity, and host sites provide the telescopes. Hosts will lead hands-on activities from the Star Party kit that will help visitors explore the question of whether there is life elsewhere in the universe, how we might find it, and what it might look like.
