[ARCHIVED] Star Party at Crescent Bend Nature Park


Due to the full cloud coverage, the Star Party on Saturday, January 26 was rescheduled for Saturday, February 23 from 6:00-9:00 PM.

Come explore the Texas night sky with volunteers from the San Antonio Astronomical Association at Crescent Bend Nature Park. Get an amazing view of Mars, Uranus, Orion, the Big Dipper, Andromeda galaxy, and the Pleiades star cluster 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.
