Statewide Star Party: Galactic STARLAB


Come out to Hammocks Beach State Park and experience the thrill and excitement of a STARLAB portable planetarium at the park! Sponsored by Woodmen Life– you will get a chance to encounter the universe and learn about the solar system and all the exciting myths and mysteries behind our dark skies.  There will be several other activities for everyone of all ages to enjoy!

If it's a clear night we will bring out the telescopes and binoculars to get a closer look at some of the planets and stars that will be shining that night.

The NC Science Festival’s annual Statewide Star Party is made possible through the generous support of the NC Space Grant.
