November 3, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm CDT

Saturday, November 3rd – Texas. The 23th Annual North Texas Skywatch Star Party will be held at Lake Mineral Wells State Park, approximately 50 miles west of Fort Worth. This very popular family friendly star party (average attendance of 200) is hosted by Lake Mineral Wells State Park and Dr. Mike Hibbs from Tarleton State University.

Dear Fellow Amateur Astronomers and Novices Curious about Astronomy,

The North Texas Skywatch Star Party will start at 6:30 PM and last as long as observers want to stay up. The intent is to give the residence of the North Texas a nearby meeting place and dark sky location to get together. I hope that all of those with telescopes can stay and share views through their telescopes, or knowledge of astronomy, to those wanting a chance to learn and see for the first time. The only cost is the normal State Park admission. You will be able to camp out for the night if you want. Come early and enjoy the park and have a cookout. Lake Mineral Wells State Park is about 50 miles west of Fort Worth off of HWY 180. Contact the Park for the entrance and camping fees and reservations, (940) 328-1171. Tell them you are coming to the star party. For more information contact hibbs@tarleton.edu or the State Park, David Owens 940-328-1171
