Carteret Co. Public Library – Beaufort: Apollo 11 Program & Star Party

***This event is being held at the Carteret Co. Public Library located in the shopping center next to Roses in Beaufort. Not Ft. Macon.***

Join Lisa Pelletier-Harman, NASA Solar System Ambassador, for a special program honoring the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11's Moon landing. The program will highlight the significance of man's achievements during the first landing and then focus on where NASA is heading next. There are some big surprises in store, as NASA takes us back to believing anything is possible and rebuilds the excitement of exploration not seen since the original "Race to the Moon".
The Crystal Coast Stargazers will be hosting a Star Party in front of the Library after the presentation to showcase the Moon and other celestial object that may be visible in the night sky. (Star Party is weather dependent.)
