This event has been CANCELLED due to weather.

We'll start with some basic stargazing. From finding constellations to specific stars. From myths and legends about these celestial beings to scientific facts and figures. We’ll spend the evening looking and learning. And after that we'll enjoy the Perseids meteor shower.

As an International Dark Sky Park, Enchanted Rock boasts some of the darkest skies in this part of Texas, which means the stars at night ARE big and bright deep in the heart of Texas. We will be bare eye stargazing.

Location: Meet at the Gazebo and we'll hike up the rock. This is moderate to difficult hike.

Bring

  • Stargazing/picnic blanket
  • Dress for the weather
  • Flashlight (preferably with a red lens; mainly for walk back to vehicle/campsite)
