[ARCHIVED] Star Party at Crescent Bend Nature Park


Come explore the Texas night sky with volunteers from the San Antonio Astronomical Association on Saturday, September 29 from 7:30 – 10:30 PM at Crescent Bend Nature Park. Get an amazing view of Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus, watch satellites tracking across the sky, and learn about the different star clusters from our knowledgeable volunteers.

Star Party Etiquette: Dim your vehicle lights when entering the park. Bring a flashlight with a red infrared “night-vision” setting or make your own by covering a regular flashlight with red cellophane and a rubber band. Dress for the weather and bring water and a camp chair if you’d like. Don’t touch any equipment without asking the astronomer first. Avoid loud and boisterous activity; the stars in the sky are the show for the night.

Call the Parks & Recreation Department for more information at (210) 619-1850 or come by the office at 10 Commercial Place, Building #1, Schertz, TX 78154.
