Find Your Way in the Sky - Statewide Star Party

Have you ever wondered what the night sky might be trying to tell you?! Horoscopes aside, did you know you could tell time by the night sky? And that's not all! Join us at Lake Norman State Park to find out more. Meet rangers and volunteers at the swim beach parking lot for some fun astronomy activities and to gaze through telescopes at the night sky. Come dressed for the weather; we will host our event rain or shine but star gazing will be weather dependent. Feel free to bring a pair of binoculars and a lawn chair if you want.
