In Depth | Lyrids – NASA Solar System Exploration

Under normal circumstances we would have held our Star Party this weekend. In an effort to continue with exciting science and nature discovery, check out the Lyrid meteor shower this evening, which will peak around 2 AM. With no moon visible and a 30% reduction in air pollution this should be a beautiful show!

How has the pandemic and Stay at Home order affected your life? The Onslow County Museum is seeking to collect your stories, experiences, and even artifacts from this life changing event.

Calling All Citizen Historians!

As we researched and wrote the changing exhibit on medical history three years ago, we relied on primary sources to help us tell the story of the 1918 flu pandemic. Future historians and researchers will do the same for the Coronavirus pandemic, and they need your help! Visit our page Remembering Coronavirus to share your experiences, photographs, video, crafts, and more as we create a digital and physical collection that will collect and preserve items born during this public health crisis.

Brunswick, New Hanover, Onslow, and Pender Counties and the municipalities within the counties are working together to become less vulnerable to natural disasters, and your participation in the process is important to us!

Onslow County is in the process of updating the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This four county regional plan identifies and assesses our community’s natural hazard risks and identifies strategies that determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.

Onslow County Emergency Services invites you to help us ensure this plan is actionable and effective by completing a short survey about hazard mitigation and community risks. The survey can be found here: https://s.surveyplanet.com/HOFD76fsq”

Citizens will have another opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions on: - October 22nd
- 6pm-7pm
- New Hanover County Public Library - Northeast Branch
- 1241 Military Cutoff Rd, Wilmington.
