Star Viewing at FENCE
This month in honor of the 4th annual North Carolina Statewide Star Party, FENCE is featuring our resident astronomical group, Foothills Astronomical Society. Once a month members of the Foothills Astronomical Society, typically on the first Friday of the month depending on the weather, come out to FENCE at sunset and set up telescopes on top of Hawk’s Ridge (behind the FENCE center). Foothills Astronomical Society aims to encourage astronomy and space exploration learning throughout the community. Whether you are a first time star gazer or an experienced observer, all are welcome to join the group.
