Virtual Family Astronomy Night – Charting the Skies

May 8, 2020

Fri., May 8 at 7:30 p.m.

Families are invited to join museum educators each Friday for a special, virtual program all about astronomy. With so many twinkling, sparkly things in the sky – how do you know what you’re looking at? This evening will focus on the South Carolina sky and different constellations and celestial objects you’ll be able to see (and how to know what you’re looking at). The activity for this evening will be a Star Wheel and will only require you to have a few things on hand.
