Come to the First Annual Fredericksburg Star Party held at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, south of town on Highway 16.
Activities will include raffles for a nice telescope, valued at over $500, and a handmade lap quilt with an astronomy theme. Live music will be provided. Of course, there will be many amateur telescopes for people to view a lot of celestial objects, including galaxies, nebula, planets, and stars.
This event benefits The Texas Amateur Astronomers’ Scholarship (TAAS) endowment at The University of Texas at Austin, Astronomy Department. The scholarship will be awarded to an undergraduate major in astronomy once per year.
This event is free to the public, and especially beneficial for children. Donations to TAAS will be accepted. For more information, please contact Hunter Scott 830-992-0740
