Star Party

Fri, August 30, 2019
(915) 566-6441

Join the Franklin Mountains park rangers and the Sun City Astronomers for an evening of night sky fun!

Meet us at the new roundhouse trailhead in North East El Paso to enjoy an evening of star gazing. We won't draw the line at stars though! We hope to get a good look at some of our neighbor planets also. 

See you there!

Bring: water, snacks, and a flashlight with a red or green light setting. 

Don't bring: White lights, as this will interrupt your night vision. If you do not have a flashlight with a red light setting, you can find free red light apps for your phone or use red cellophane to cover the end of a flashlight. 

Optional: folding chairs, binoculars, camera, and star charts.

Fee: This is a FREE event!

Directions:

    From Highway 54 take exit number 31 and turn onto Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. Continue on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd for about 2.5 miles. The trailhead will be on your left.
