Don't miss Friday Starry Nights at the Roper Mountain Science Center! This fun event blends entertainment with education to create fun, lasting memories for families who attend.

Friday Starry Nights are held at the Giant Dome Theater and Planetarium and teach attendants about the wonders of the sky. Each night of the event, there is a 15 minute pre-show called Upstate's Sky Tonight which provides an exciting and quick update about the current placements of the planets, constellations, moon phases and other special celestial events.

From 7p.m. until 8 p.m. the Cowboy Astronomer feature show teaches visitors of all ages about the unseen wonders of the sky and the seasonal celestial features of the heavens. From 8:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m., visitors can enjoy the Sunstruck feature show. This show is recommended for children aged 10 and older through adults. Sunstruck teaches how the sun is connected to the universe's cycle of life and death.

Whether you are just visiting Greenville or a resident, this event is sure to be something your family remembers for years to come! The Roper Mountain Science Center is located at 402 Roper Mountain Road.
