5th Annual Night Sky Festival at Sky’s The Limit Observatory & Nature Center in Joshua Tree

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for the 5th Annual Night Sky Festival at Sky’s The Limit Observatory & Nature Center in Joshua Tree September 21, 2019.

This annual all-day event includes activities for all ages. In the morning, visit Sky’s the Limit Observatory for a guided tour around the Orrery, a scale model of the solar system that is large enough to walk around and through. While there, take a guided walk on a wilderness or hiking trail with docents explaining the plants, animals and geology of our special environment. Stop at the solar telescope for a close-up look of the sun. Youth can participate in astronomy themed crafts.
The afternoon presents a variety of astronomy lectures by knowledgeable presenters. Attendees can stop at the night sky “selfie” photo booth, and a variety of information tables including the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) and other supporting organizations. A highlight of the events is the Night Star Party where spectacular views of our night sky are abundant. Through our 20 telescopes with astronomers, listen as these experts explain what you are seeing. Enjoy live music and storytelling during the viewing.
