Free event for Creekside families
From Mr. Slavin, science specialist, Creekside Elementary:
The 1st, 3rd and 4th grades will be studying about the moon, earth and solar system during the next nine weeks. And 5th grade will be studying the weather, which is impacted by the moon. This is a great event run by the Morehead Planetarium to elaborate the learning experience for any age!
Skywatching at Jordan Lake
viewing: Saturn, Venus, Moon, Mars
Nov 5, 2016  7:00pm to 9:00pm 
Ebenezer Church Recreation Area
Morehead Planetarium hosts free skywatching sessions every month (weather permitting). Morehead educators and CHAOS members (from Chapel Hill Astronomical & Observational Society) bring telescopes and guide you through fun observations of stars, planets, moons, nebulae and other celestial objects. You might even see a few meteors!
Skywatching sessions are very informal and family-friendly. Each session is scheduled for two hours, but you can arrive and leave at any time during the session. During the evening, you might do any of these things: peek through telescopes for up-close views of celestial objects, take a laser-guided “star tour” of the night sky and learn where to look for major constellations.

Skywatching sessions are at Ebenezer Church Recreation Area, part of Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. This site has restrooms, a picnic shelter and a sandy beach area. You’ll find the telescopes at the far (west) end of the parking lot.
Check the Morehead Planetarium website for more information and for weather updates/cancellation.
