Join us at Prairie Ridge Ecostation to view the stars during the Statewide Star Party, an exciting part of the NC Science Festival! See the stars and planets through the Raleigh Astronomy Club's telescopes, learn about the constellations, get answers to your astronomy questions, and learn how YOU can help scientists learn more about our universe while having fun doing astronomy and night sky activities for all ages. This event is free and open to the public, so stop by for some starry fun.  Don't forget your flashlight - it's going to be dark!  For more information, please contact Chris Goforth at or 919.707.8882.

Prairie Ridge is located at 1671 Gold Star Drive in Raleigh.  Please note that if you use a GPS to find us, you may end up too far down the street.  Look for the Prairie Ridge sign that marks our entrance!
