Texas Parks and the Big Bend Astronomers will co-host a public star party for all ages at Big Bend Ranch State Park on Saturday, November 30, 2013. We'll have several telescopes and big binoculars on hand to observe star clusters, nebulas, galaxies, and the planets Venus, Uranus, and Neptune. We'll also be pointing out constellations and other objects easily visible to the unaided eye from a dark-sky location like BBRSP. Dress warmly!
Participants will gather at the Sauceda Headquarters at 6:45 pm. Sauceda is located in the interior of BBRSP about 1.5 hours drive over a dirt /gravel road from Presidio. The park entry fee for 13 years and over is $5.00 per person. All are encouraged to stay over at Sauceda to have ample time to enjoy the park. Lodging can be reserved by calling 512-389-8919 and meal requests need to be made at least one week in advance by calling Sauceda directly at 432-358-4444.
We look forward to sharing our Park Stars with you!
