Public Star Parties in Lubbock Texas

The South Plains Astronomy Club holds a monthly Public Star Party in Lubbock (weather permitting) and everyone is invited to come by and observe the moon, planets and other celestial objects through a variety of telescopes. Got a telescope or binoculars? Bring them! Like mosquitos? We got 'em! Actually, you should probably bring bug repellent during the warmer months.

Tech Terrace Park in Lubbock, just south of the Texas Tech University campus.
The Friday closest to the date of the First Quarter Moon.
See the SPAC Calendar of Events for the exact date.

People usually start setting up their telescopes around sundown or shortly thereafter.

This event depends upon the weather - the sky has to be clear or mostly clear - you can't see the moon or stars if it's cloudy! If there's any doubt, see the Message Board at the bottom of the SPAC Main Page a few hours before the event to see if it's been cancelled.

So, if the clouds stay away, come on out and join the members of the South Plains Astronomy Club for an evening of star-, moon-, and planet-gazing.
