Event: Joshua Tree Night Sky Festival

Date: September 21, 2019

Location: Sky's the Limit Observatory

 

The event takes place at Sky's the Limit Observatory and Nature Center which is right on the border of Joshua Tree National Park, The event involves more than 20 telescopes, free astronomy lectures, constellation tours, native american "stories in the stars" and more. Lectures include Ashley Pipkin (National Park Service), Keri Bean (JPL/NASA), and Dean Regas (Cincinnati Observatory). The lectures are free however the Saturday night star party is a ticketed event and sells out every year.

Hey, best of luck to y'all.  Wish I could make it.

 

I attended the Texas Night Sky Festival this year.  It was fantastic.  I made a lot of connections with other dark sky advocates there.

 

Please do a write up of it afterwards.
