About this Event

Come view the wonders of the night sky at the ranch district of Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park on Saturday, November 2!

Beginning at 4:30 pm the Hill Country Astronomers will present a planetarium talk featuring dramatic audio-visual depictions of the night sky.

At 5:15 pm, Wayne Gosnell, president of the Blanco County Friends of the Night Sky, will present “Big and Bright are the Stars at Night.”

After the two presentations conclude at 6:00 pm, park staff will escort visitors to the telescopes, which will be set up on the ranch’s airstrip. Visitors can view stars, globular star clusters, and even distant galaxies. Plan to arrive early for these presentations (the LBJ Ranch entrance will close at 6:00 pm). Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes. Flashlights are recommended. The program is free of charge.

Entry to the LBJ Ranch is located north of US Highway 290, just off of Ranch Road 1. In case of inclement weather, call the Hangar visitor center at 830-644-2396 for event updates. For information on night skies in national parks, visit www.nps.gov/subjects/nightskies.
