IMPERIAL CENTRE STAR PARTY:
ONLY ONE WEEK AWAY!
Join us, (weather permitting) Friday, May 5, in the COURTYARD of Rocky Mount’s IMPERIAL CENTRE for the Arts & Sciences, for a relaxing evening of telescope viewing and stargazing! We will operate several telescopes to provide spectacular views of craters, mountains and ancient lava flows on the MOON's surface. Also visible is the BEEHIVE STAR CLUSTER. The giant planet JUPITER and its four largest moons take center stage however, as this is the BEST OPPORTUNITY of the year for observing Jupiter, which has just made its closest approach to Earth. The STAR PARTY, hosted by the staff of the CUMMINS PLANETARIUM and volunteers from the TAR RIVER ASTRONOMY CLUB (TRAC), is one of many activities featured at the Imperial Centre’s FIRST FRIDAY event, from 6-9:00 PM. Observing gets underway around sunset, weather permitting. Feel free to bring flashlights, binoculars, or a scope if you wish. Or, just look through ours!
