Dorthea Dix Park
Dorothea Dix Park Saturday, November 17th 6pm-10pm Free

Join staff and volunteers from the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society (CHAOS) and Raleigh Astronomy Club (RAC) for a free skywatching program at Dorothea Dix Park!

Visitors to the park will be able to look through telescopes, facilitated by Morehead staff and dedicated volunteers, at a variety of objects in the sky. Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars will be prime targets -- along with many other deep sky objects. This session is being held at the peak of the Leonids meteor shower, so keep your eyes pointed skyward even when you are not looking through a telescope! Bring a blanket or chairs so you can relax under the stars.
