Go star gazing in Cooleemee
COOLEEMEE — Residents can go star gazing in the yard of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church at 7 p.m. Nov. 5.
Mark Smith, who is known as Cooleemee’s own astronomer, says this date should provide a better look at the stars and advises those coming out to “wear something warm and get ready to see stars.”
Smith, whose family living on Yadkin Street has a telescope larger than most, encourages those who were given telescopes for Christmas that are only taking up closet space to bring them. “I’ll help them learn how to use theirs.”
Hot chocolate and hot coffee will be served by church members.
Good Shepherd is located at the intersection of Church and Cross Streets in Cooleemee, a block off Marginal Street.
