A message from the McDonald Observatory! The McDonald Observatory invites our neighbors from Fort Davis, Marfa, and Alpine to a special free Star Party program on the first Wednesday of every other month. Our first Community Night Star Party will be October 7th, 2020. There is no charge for our community members to participate, but reservations are required, and capacity is limited. Community Night passes are limited to local residents only.
The program is currently sold out, but you can still sign up for a waitlist for it incase any openings are made. To sing up for the waitlist, find “Preferred time slot sold out? Click here to get added to our waitlist.” underneath the "Select timeslot.” Click the link there which while bring up the wait list function for the program. Make a request for the date in which you are interested. The wait list request doesn’t obligate you to anything so no worries if you change your mind. The system will alert you when dates become available.
