Nite Sky Star Party
The Kershaw County Library, in collaboration with Kershaw County Government, invite you to come out to the Science Center on Monday, Dec. 21 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM to view the big event in the southwest sky.
Jupiter and Saturn are coming closer together than they have been in 400 years.
Look at this article on Space.com for an excellent explanation: https://www.space.com/great-conjunction-jupiter-saturn-explained
The Science Center is located at 730 State Rd. S-28-331 (Park Road). Traveling North on U.S. Highway 1 toward Cassatt, turn right onto Malvern Hill Rd. At the end of Malvern Hill, (across from Goodale State Park entrance), turn left and travel 2.4 miles on S-28-331. The Science Center is on the right. It is a wide open space in which to view the sky. Bring your own telescope if you have one. If you don’t have a telescope, we will have at least 3 scopes and 4 sets of binoculars to share.
Our resident Solar System Ambassador (a NASA volunteer) Ken Bailey will be there to answer questions. We will provide wipes to clean telescopes between uses, but will require masks when near the scopes. Bathroom facilities will be open, but bring lawn chairs if you want to sit.
Call Lauren Decker at the Camden branch of the Kershaw County Library with questions. The Camden branch’s number is 803-425-1508.
