Joshua Tree for the 2019 Night Sky Festival!!

 

When: September 21, 2019

 

Where: Joshua Tree National Park

 

This is a really fun event! The event starts with amazing daytime activities that include solar observing, a night sky photography workshop, and free lectures from Dean Regas (Cincinnati Observatory), Ashley Pipkin (National Park Service NPS/Night Skies Division), and Keri Bean (JPL/NASA)... and culminates with a terrific star party at night with more than 20 telescopes, live music, constellation tours and Native American "Stories in the Stars" at the Sky's the Limit Observatory!

 

If you are in Southern California and want to immerse yourself in a full day (or evening) of night sky activities, this is the "must attend" event!

 

Tickets are available here, or go to www.nightskyfestival.org

I hope it went well. I was thinking of attending, but there was a conflict with RTMC on the same day. Now that RTMC is no longer going to operate, I might attend your event next year. Mike

The event went really well. Weather cooperated. Live music, constellation tours, visual and video astronomy. The band played "Rocket Man" as the ISS went across the sky. I think R2-D2 might make an appearance at next year's event. We will see. :)  This is really a fun event.
