Star Party

The party starts when the stars come out!

The public is invited to share telescopes with the Austin Astronomical Society to observe the sky. We’ll show such objects as planets, the moon, galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and more.

There is no charge for the star party itself, but visitors must pay the park entry fee of $6 for ages 13 and up, with children 12 and under free. On weekends reservations are recommended ahead of time for Day Use passes. Ask for direction at headquarters.

Please consider a flashlight with a red bulb, but we have red cellophane to cover a white light. Please do not bring a dog, unless it is a service animal.. Smoking is not permitted in the area of the telescopes because the smoke can damage optical equipment. Public consumption of alcoholic beverages is not allowed in state parks.
