Night Sky Events

Star Party Flyer
 

This summer Carlsbad Caverns National Park will be hosting several Star Party events. 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 spectacular views are available in the universe above.

Rangers will be available to discuss a variety of topics from nocturnal creatures, cultural folklore and astronomy.

The public is welcome. No fee or advance reservations are necessary. Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather.

These events will be held immediately after Bat Flight, so please join us in the East parking lot in front of the visitor center (parking limited to the West lot). The visitor center and cave will not be open during these events.

2015 Star Party dates:

June 13

July 18

August 15

September 12

October 10
