3rd Edition
Public Events
Each month we offer an Open House at the Meyer Observatory, near Clifton, Texas. Registration is strongly encouraged, and we have an indoor program in case of cloudy weather. 
We also offer public stargazing (star parties) at various locations in Central Texas. We also encourage you to register for these events, especially so we can warn you if we have to cancel for bad weather.
The Star Parties are cancelled.  
The Open House will still occur.
