We'll be partnering with Fort Moultrie to host The Night Sky Program on Saturday night, weather permitting of course. Saturday, April 27th at 8pm at 1214 Middle St, Sullivans Island, to be exact.

For more information on this event, please see the event page here, or on Facebook.

Clear skies!

Astronomy in the Park

Weather looks pretty good for Astronomy in the Park. We'll be at Brittlebank Park from sunset until about 10pm. Stop by after work or before dinner and see what the universe has to offer. Our members will have a telescope or two set up, and will be available to answer your questions about the night sky. 

 We will set up at the south end of the park opposite the Marriott Hotel, and for those attending, we ask that you park in designated parking spaces, and not on the grass.

Please check back here or Facebook for cancellations.

Tonight we have a low, bright pass of the International Space Station that should be interesting. If you don't come out, see if you can see it from where you are!
