Statewide Star Party: Hammocks Beach State Park

THIS IS A NC SCIENCE FESTIVAL SPONSORED PROGRAM.

Come out to Hammocks Beach State Park after dark to explore and learn about our dark skies and all the exciting myths and mysteries behind our stars and planets. There will be several galactic-themed games and crafts to explore the universe with!  Fun for all ages!  If it's a clear night, we will bring out the telescopes to get a closer look at some of the planets and stars that will be shining that night.
