To The Moon and Beyond! - Star Party at Pilot Mountain State Park

In a partnership with Forsyth Astronomical Society and Pilot Mountain State Park, join us for a fun filled afternoon and evening of moon, sky, and star related activities!  Bounce your way through history of moon-exploration and celebrate the amazing journey of Apollo 11's landing on our moon.

Please bring a red flashlight or see park staff for free red filters for your white light – ask why?
