The Triad Starfest, *Tri*Star* for short, is a conference of astronomers of all types, from novice to professional, for a full day of presentations, displays, and observing. The event allows astronomy enthusiasts to share ideas, learn about a range of astronomical topics, get together with old friends, and make new ones. The event draws astronomers from North Carolina and surrounding states. This year’s edition will celebrate the memory of Dennis Hands, a longtime organizer of this event.

We are excited for @DrSianProctor, who will be a part of the SpaceX #Inspiration4 mission that will orbit Earth for three days and conduct a variety of experiments. We are proud of our #ACEAP alumni! #Inspiration4 #ACEAP #Space #astroambassadors
