Head over to the Coastal Discovery Museum, located at 70 Honey Horn Dr., on Dec. 14, 2016 at 3 p.m. for the Guide to Tonight’s Sky program. The stars have fascinated people for centuries. Come and learn how to get started with star gazing. It only requires good eyesight and a dark sky, something that can be found in the Lowcountry. After a brief description of the types of stars, we’ll turn our attention to locating constellations in the winter sky using a virtual planetarium computer program. With Orion as our guide, you should be able to identify the 6 constellations of the Winter Hexagon in the night sky as well as gain insight on how to star gaze on your own. Marie McClune, docent at the Museum and “Sky Ranger,” will lead the program.
Cost is $7 per person (aged 12 and older) and reservations are required. You may call the Coastal Discovery Museum to at (843) 689-6767, ext. 223 or go to coastaldiscovery.org to register.
