CANCELLED: Star Stories: Stargazing on the Peninsula

8:00p to 9:00p
Sat, December 29, 2018
Joel Janssen
(936)365-2201 x2060

Learn about the stars and constellations visible above East Texas.


NOTICE: This event has been cancelled due to a 70% or greater chance of rain forecast for the event. We will host another astronomy program in Jan.

Take a tour of the night sky to learn about the stars.  Rangers will show you some of the most popular constellations and tell the stories behind them.  There may be an opportunity to view any visible planets or nebulae through a telescope.  The visible stars and planets change a little each month, so you’ll see new things each time you come to visit!

We recommend bringing a blanket or lawn chair to sit on, binoculars if you have them, and a flashlight to assist with walking back to your campsite or vehicle. 

Star Stories will take place on the main peninsula accessible from the activity center day use area.

In the case of cloudy skies, we will offer a ½ mile night hike around the peninsula area or other star related activities, meeting at the activity center above the peninsula. 

Regular park admission fees of $5 per adult ages 13 and up apply; no additional charge for activities. 

No reservations necessary.
