Come explore the wonders of the night sky at a public star party at Pedernales Falls State Park on Saturday, April 7th. FREE with the cost of park entry, safe solar viewing and dark sky activities will kick off from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. Night sky observing and other activities will run from 8 pm to 10 pm.
Co-Hosted by the Texas Night Sky Festival® Team and Austin Astronomical Society, the festivities will take place at the Pedernales Falls Star Theater, adjacent to the Equestrian Area in the park. Parking will be available near the activity area which is adjacent to the Star Theater.
In case of inclement weather, a “Go” or “No Go” notification will be posted on the Texas Night Sky Festival® Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TexasNightSkyFestival/ by 2 p.m. on the day of the party.
This event is the first of many star party events which will be hosted via a new partnership between Austin Astronomical Society and Pedernales Falls State Park. This public star party has the added attraction of having activities brought to you by the Texas Night Sky Festival® Team, which is comprised of representatives from the Hays County Chapter Texas Master Naturalists, IDA Texas and the City of Dripping Springs. Weather permitting, it will be an excellent family-friendly activity for all ages to experience.
