Events at Brittlebank and Hampton Plantation

Tonight we have our almost-weekly Astronomy in the Park at Brittlebank park starting around sunset. Weather looks nice, and we're in for a full moon tonight. There's also a very bright overhead pass of the International Space Station as well.  Click here or on the image to learn how to see it where you are tonight. (Note: you'll probably have to set your location.)

Saturday night Hampton Plantation is hosting a stargazing event with the Lowcountry Stargazers. For more info, please see the Facebook event, or the SC State Parks website.
