[ARCHIVED] Star Party at Crescent Bend Nature Park
Come explore the Texas night sky with volunteers from the San Antonio Astronomical Association on Saturday, June 22 from 8:00 – 11:00 PM 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.
