The 6th annual UNC Charlotte Statewide Star Party (part of North Carolina’s annual Statewide Star Party) will be held at the campus observatory on Friday April 20, 8:30 – 10 PM.
It will be a great event for children and adults who want to learn more about the planets, stars and galaxies that make up our universe.
