Four Oaks NC 27524PhonePrimary - (919) 938-0115Join Howell Woods in celebration of the North Carolina Science Festival with a sky watching extravaganza! Howell Woods is a perfect spot for viewing the night sky because it’s located away from city lights. During the afternoon, solar telescopes will be staffed by amateur astronomers who can show the public sunspots and solar flares. And after dark, we'll train our telescopes on the moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and a number of deep sky objects. NOTE: If you have your own telescope or binoculars, we encourage you to bring them along with blankets and chairs. This Statewide Star Party event is an extension of the Howell Woodstock festival which begins at 1:00 p.m. Come early, bring the kids and enjoy an afternoon of nature talks and activities, food, music, crafts and fun!
