Join a park ranger as we learn to navigate our dark skies. 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.
It’s International Dark Sky Week!
Throughout this week(end), join us for a variety of activities and programs that involve learning about the universe, the planet, the day, the night — and our particular place in it all.
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. Feel free to bring your own telescope.
Location: Lower Parking Lot. There is no hiking as part of this program.
Park: in the Summit Trail Parking or RV Parking lots.
Bring: lawn chair or stargazing blanket (optional); flashlight (preferably with a red lens, mainly for walk back to vehicle/campsite); dress for the weather;
Entrance fee for the park is $7/person (children 12 and under are free); no additional fee to attend this program. Entry is free with a Texas State Parks Pass.
Texas State Parks has a NEW reservation system. While reservations are not required for this event, without a reservation for day-use, we cannot guarantee entry into the park for this event.
Please no flashlights or cell phones during this event (it can take 20-30 minutes for eyes to adjust from bright light to darkness). Red tinted lights are permitted.
**This event is weather permitting**
