The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, along with the Texas Astronomical Society of Dallas, and the Fort Worth Astronomical Society, will be hosting a star gazing party at Palo Pinto Mountains State Park on Saturday November 2, beginning at 5:00 p.m. To get to the event, just go west on FM 2372 or the Tucker Lake Road from Strawn. Go two miles from town and look for the signs. You can bring your own telescope or use one provided by volunteers, who will be on hand to share expertise, knowledge, and lore. Barbecue brisket sandwiches, chips and drinks will be available as a fundraiser for the local volunteer fire department. In the event of rain or cloudy skies, the event will be the following Saturday, November 9.
