[ARCHIVED] Star Party at Crescent Bend Nature Park


Due to inclement weather, the last scheduled Star Party for November 9 was rescheduled. We invite you to come explore the Texas night sky with us on Saturday, December 9 from 5:30 – 9:00 PM at Crescent Bend Nature Park, 12805 W Schaefer Rd, Schertz, TX 78108. Everyone is invited out to view Jupiter, Saturn, Andromeda, and the summer Milky Way. Volunteers from the San Antonio Astronomical Association will have their telescopes available for visitors to get a peek at these natural wonders.

This event is FREE and pre-registration is required as space is limited. Contact City of Schertz Parks and Recreation at (210) 619-1850.

There is some Star Party Etiquette that we ask you to follow: 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.
