Description:

Enjoy an evening walk across the galaxy by using star maps, a laser pointer and telescope.
Retired National Park Ranger Larry Smith will guide you through the planets, moon and stars.
Plan about 2 hours for this program that will start at 8 p.m. To ensure that the telescopes are not toppled over, we ask that children remain seated.

Please register your group by calling the park office during business hours at (254) 694-3973 or email Rita.eisenschenk@tpwd.texas.gov providing the number of adults and children attending and a phone number to contact if needed.

Bring your own camp chairs if you would like or you may use the metal picnic tables spaced out in the area. Binoculars if you have them and a flash light with a red beam works best for the dark sky.

This event will be held across from our Group Rec Hall. Follow the signs for parking and solar lights to the picnic tables.

Park entry permits are required on all vehicles.  You may purchase online and print to display, purchase at the park office before closing at 4:30 p.m. or complete the self pay entry envelopes located across from the office by using correct cash amount.

This event will be cancelled if temps are below 55 or raining.  We will call everyone that has signed up when an event is cancelled.
