Starry Nights is an event for children and adults who are interested in the amazing night skies.
On Friday evening a visiting astronomer will give a presentation about the Hatteras night sky at the Hatteras Village Civic Center followed by viewing the stars.
On Saturday there will be a free children’s program at the Hatteras Fire House with a portable planetarium.
While the beach is a great place for star watching, this event will take place in Hatteras Village Park, a community-owned walkway through the marsh that is free of light pollution.
This event is structured around the phases of the moon so there is not excess light interfering with star watching.
