Discover Natural Transylvania — SPECIAL TIME
September 6, 2018 @ 11:30 pm - September 7, 2018 @ 1:15 am
Discover Natural Transylvania is a monthly program series at the Transylvania County Library exploring the place where we live, work, and play. Presenters include experts in the fields of ecology, biology, geology, flora, fauna, outdoor recreation, and more. The programs are on the first Thursday evening of most months at 6:30 pm in the Rogow Room. Each program lasts approximately one hour. Light refreshments are provided. These free programs are supported by the Friends of the Library. There will not be an October program because of Book Sale set-up.
Thursday, September 6th @ 7:30 pm (special time) “Transylvania Skies” with Bob Hayward, Astronomer/Educator, Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute. PARI Astronomer and Educator, Dr. Bob Hayward will discuss what is in the current night sky and why we are able to see 4 of the 5 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 adjacent counties for the best “star-gazing” views. IF THE WEATHER COOPERATES, we’ll be sky and star watching after the program on the Library’s patio with telescopes from PARI.
