Description
This very popular family friendly star party (average attendance of 200). The North Texas Skywatch Star Party will start at 6:30 PM and last as long as observers want to stay up. The intent is to give the residence of the North Texas a nearby meeting place and dark sky location to get together. Amateur astronomers will be on hand to share views through their telescopes, or knowledge of astronomy, to those wanting a chance to learn and see for the first time. Come early and enjoy the park and have a cookout or camp out.
