I live very close to that area, living between Butner and Creedmoor. If
anyone has any questions or needs directions, dont hesitate to ask. The sky
limiting magnitude is probably 5.5 - 6 out that way but has been decreasing
the past 5 years, IMO.
I'm not sure about my availability on the 24th (I know RAC is doing an
astronomy event at Morehead during the day) but I may be able to help if
needed. My experience is just a bit limited, but I suspect the kids will be
just as happy looking at the moon or Jupiter.
