Lake James State Park Superintendent Nora Coffey co-hosts with the Catawba Valley Astronomy Club for a night of star gazing. Learn some basic star gazing tips and take home a star chart. Telescopes and binoculars set up for viewing the night sky or bring your own. Folding chairs are recommended. Park at the East Picnic Shelter and walk to the upper parking lot. The sun sets around 6:45 p.m. As long as skies are clear we'll hang out until at least 9 p.m. In case of rain/clouds we will have a short program prepared in the East Shelter.
