The Central Texas Astronomical Society offers public programs and stargazing monthly for around the city of Hubbard in Hill County. Join us, bring the family, and see the skies of Central Texas! You don't need to bring anything, but if you have binoculars or a telescope, by all means bring them. A small flashlight would be helpful to get from the parking lot to the viewing area nearby and a lawn chair will make upward gazing a little more comfortable . CTAS members will be on hand, beginning at sundown, with telescopes and binoculars to highlight your tour of the night sky. Sometimes weather does not cooperate and the Society regrets that it cannot offer a makeup date in case of rain. Please check the schedule for next month's star party date.
Want some ideas for objects to observe? Go to the Viewing Lists in our Documents Section and select the current month.
