Statewide Star Party 2022

The 2022 NC Science Festival's Statewide Star Party event will be held in-person at DSO! Our event will be on the evening of April 9, 2022. Join us for a night under the Moon and stars at Appalachian State University’s Dark Sky Observatory and the Jo & DonCline Visitor Center.  The main targets for our telescope are the first quarter Moon, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies . If we are clouded out we will have a PowerPoint slide show, a facility tour, and Q&A. There will be two sessions, from 8:30pm -10:00, and 10:30-midnight.
