9:30 PM - 11:00 PM
1 PARI Drive, Rosman, NC 28772

Come just before dark to meet with a PARI astronomer who will show you the best of what the sky has to offer. From planets and moons to galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters, you’ll be amazed at what will be revealed.

🌕Lunar Nights: when the Moon dominates the sky we will explore its various terrains, craters, and Apollo landing sights as well as any other bright stars, planets, and objects in the night sky.
🌌Starry Nights: when the nights darken in the Moon’s absence we will dive into deep space objects like nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters.

An assortment of telescopes will be waiting for you, each suited for viewing different types of objects. Reflectors and refractors with mirrors from 5 inches to 25 inches will ensure that whether you’re aimed at the Moon or distant galaxies, you’ll get the telescope that captures it best.
