Make plans to view the wonders of the night sky at Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park. The National Park Service will host programs highlighting the marvels of the night sky and the importance of preserving dark skies. The Hill Country Astronomers (HCA) will set up telescopes and offer a stargazing experience. The event will begin at 4:30 pm with an astronomy program in the Hangar Visitor Center. At 5:15 pm, Blanco County Friends of the Night Sky will present “Big and Bright are the Stars at Night”. After the two presentations conclude, park staff will escort visitors to the telescopes which will be set up on the ranch’s airstrip. Plan to arrive early as the LBJ Ranch entrance will close at 6 pm. Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes. Flashlights are recommended.
4:30 to 8:30 pm. Free.
