Stargazers Journey

Wednesday, Dec 5, 2018 –

Time: 5:30pm – 9:30pm

Sign up for the ultimate stargazing experience!

The Stargazer's Journey is designed to allow a small intimate group to work directly with an astronomical educator while they observe the night sky.

The evening will begin at our restaurant, Smiley's, where your educator will tell you about the history of our facilities while you enjoy dinner.

You will then move to our south observation deck to watch the sun set with 360 degree views of the Pisgah National Forest including views of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Once the skies become dark, the event will move to our sky deck where optical telescopes will be ready to provide stunning views of distant objects in the night sky. We will select planets, nebulae, galaxies, stars, and clusters from the best of what the season has to offer.

(Should weather conditions not cooperate, we will offer refunds or rainchecks to our guests for Stargazer's Journey).
