Starry Nights Hatteras is back for its fifth year! Join us at the Hatteras Village Community Building (behind library) on Saturday, February 15th from 2 – 8 pm for astronaut training as we prepare for a Mars Explorer Mission!

Hatteras Village Civic Association sponsors this free community event which hosts the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center from UNC Chapel Hill. They bring a mobile planetarium theater, hands-on science activities, and telescopes – all activities are administered by a Morehead educator. We will have additional STEM activities for the children to further explore space, the moon, and mars. People of all ages but especially kids will enjoy this space-tacular event!

For more information visit www.starrynightshatteras.com On our site we have movie trailers, video examples of the blow-up planetarium, and the science on your street activities. Send us a message with any questions or if you would like to volunteer!

PLANETARIUM MOVIE SHOWINGS: 2:30 PM, 3:30 PM, 4:30 PM
Inside the mobile planetarium we will be showing “Astronaut” narrated by Ewan McGregor and produced by the National Space Center. Experience a rocket launch from inside the body of an astronaut!

SCIENCE ON YOUR STREET ACTIVITIES: 2:00 – 5:00 PM
A Morehead educator will guide you through a unique activity that will explore STEM fields such as chemistry and physics, as well as coding and engineering design. Hands-on experiences will encourage your group to discover STEM through the power of curiosity.

LIVE TELESCOPE VIEWING: 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Morehead educators bring telescopes and guide you through fun observations of stars, planets, moons, nebulae and other celestial objects. You might even see a few meteors! *This activity is dependent on clear skies, a live sky show inside the planetarium will be offered if its too cloudy outside.
