St. Simons Island Star Walk July 23

Can you find the North Star? The Big Dipper? How about Orion’s Belt?

You can locate these constellations and more if you come to the Coastal Georgia Historical Society’s Star Walk on July 23 at 8:30 p.m.

Led by astronomer David Dundee of the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, GA, the program will begin with a short introduction in the Education Building behind the Maritime Center at the Historic Coast Guard Station on East Beach. Participants will then move outside and down to the beach to gaze at the stars as Mr. Dundee completes his presentation with a star tour.

Bring your telescope for the second half of the program (not required).

Admission fee for the program is $10 per person. Admission fees are waived for current Coastal Georgia Historical Society members. Call the Society at (912) 638-4666 to register.
