Come join us for a brand new series: First Fridays Under the Stars! Raleigh Astronomy Club will be hosting a monthly night sky viewing session at one of our private sites that will only be open for this event! The old site for Three Bears Acres will be the perfect location for star viewing fun so bring a blanket or chair and we will see you there!

Because this is a private preserve, we ask that you leave furry friends at home. We suggest that you bring a picnic blanket or chair to stargaze in, extra layers, a red flashlight, and snacks and a water bottle. Please remember to pack anything that you bring in, back out with you and we can’t wait to see you amongst the stars! This is a free event, but preregistration is required. Make sure to save your spot below!

Rain Date Plan if Needed: We have set the following Saturday (in this case Saturday, Feb 4th) as the rain date to ensure that we will have the best viewing chances possible. If any changes are made to the dates, we will contact everyone by email by lunchtime on Friday using the 24 hour cloud cover predictions to make the best call that we can.

Current Mask Policy: TLC seeks to build a supportive, mask-friendly environment in all collaborations with staff and the public. Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated, or if that makes you feel most comfortable. We will have masks available if you would like to wear one during an event. We also encourage those eligible to be vaccinated to get their Covid-19 vaccine and booster shot. If you are experiencing any Covid-related symptoms, please stay home and attend a program another day. Our top priority is to create a safe environment for our community. Thank you for your understanding.
