I was just reading an article in the paper today here in Charlotte, NC. The small town of Burnsville up in the mountains will host this event. This week after the fireworks display is finished in the town square, they will be turning off the local town lights and local traffic will be detoured away from the square as not to have car headlights spoiling the views in the dark. The local astronomy club will be setting up their scopes and also inviting others with a scope to set them up as well.

The name of the event is called "Stars on the Square" What a great idea and story this is!

Sorry to hear it got rained out.
That is something I would've loved to see.
