Discover Natural Transylvania will meet at a special time, 7:30 pm, on Thursday, Sept. 6 to focus on the skies overhead. Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute astronomer and educator Dr. Bob Hayward will discuss what is in the current night sky and why we are able to see four of the five naked-eye planets during September. He’ll also discuss characteristics of a good observing site and offer suggestions on where to go in Transylvania County and at overlooks along the Blue Ridge Parkway for the best stargazing views. If the weather cooperates, you can go sky and star watching after the program on the library’s patio with telescopes from PARI.
