The rain date for the event is Saturday, March 11, 2023, from 7-9 p.m.  Announcements regarding a schedule change will be announced on COA social media.

“COA Star Nights” is a fun and educational event featuring astronomy-themed activities for all ages.  View the craters of the Moon live through various telescopes! Take a guided tour of the constellations! Walk a half-mile scaled solar system.  Learn about the latest findings in astronomy, including the James Webb Space Telescope.

“COA Star Nights” is a public event; all are welcome and encouraged to attend.  If you cannot participate on March 10th, we have another event on April 21, 2023, at COA – Elizabeth City.  All events begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m.

“COA Star Nights” events are made possible through generous grant support from Dominion Energy.  The half-mile scaled solar system is made possible through support from Lowe’s.  COA is greatly appreciative of the funding support to make these events available.
