Sky Trek at PARI


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Enjoy dinner and take a Sky Trek with us to marvel at the views through an array of optical telescopes to witness what DARK sky actually looks like as we explore each of the visible planets. Visit a few of the Wonders of our Milky Way before we journey to one of our neighboring galaxies. This event is designed for all ages, so bring the entire family.

Reservations are required and will be accepted until 3:00 p.m. the day of the event. Gates will open one hour before the start of the event, and close one hour after the start of the event. An optional dinner at our new restaurant, Smiley's, will be served before observing from 6:00pm -7:30pm.

If you plan to use GPS for navigation to our site, be aware that many carriers have intermittent signal in PARI's vicinity, so queue up the directions ahead of time. We have found Google Maps to provide the most reliable route to us when your use our address of 1 PARI Drive, Rosman, NC.

Please note that this event will take place rain, clouds or shine. Should outside observing conditions not be favorable, PARI educators have prepared an exciting indoor program and activities.
