Do the Stars Align in Your Favor? Find Out at This Event Hosted by the Lowcountry Stargazers

Every Wednesday starting at 6 p.m., the Lowcountry stargazers host their weekly Astronomy in the Park event at Brittlebank Park, weather permitting.

Everyone from adults to little kids at all astronomical experience levels are invited to head on out to observe the night sky. Stargazers will be able to see Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the moon and maybe even some globular clusters and galaxies.

“Its just another way of appreciating nature and appreciating what’s around us,” says Jim Hoffman, president of the Lowcountry Stargazers.

If you still have a thirst for astronomical knowledge after this event, you can also join the Lowcountry Stargazers as a member for $50 a year, or $20 for students. Meetings occur at the Atlantic Aviation center near the airport the first Thursday of every month, and as a member, you’ll be able to learn how to set up and acquire your own astronomical gear, along with how to observe the night sky. You’ll also gain access to the Lowcountry Stargazer’s dark sky site at Mullet Hall Equestrian Center on Johns Island, where you can bring friends and family for a night of observation and astronomy.

Even though Parks at Nexton Apartments in Summerville, South Carolina provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
