Celebration of the Night and Star Party
October 9, 2010 @ 12:00 am EDT
Carlsbad Caverns National Park will host a Star Party and Celebration of the Night event. The park is a perfect spot for viewing the wonders of the night sky due to its location away from the lights of the local communities.
Weather permitting; telescopes will be available for viewing the celestial night sky and will provide an opportunity for visitors to see for themselves what is visible in the world above us. Ranger guided walks and programs will be available.
The public is welcome. No fee or advance reservations are necessary. The visitor center and cave will not be open.
Prior to the late evening events, come watch the infamous Bat Flight Program, were hundreds of thousands of bats make their mass exodus from the cave!
