See the Milky Way at Badlands National Park

Badlands National Park will host our 3rd annual Astronomy Festival beginning Friday July 25 and ending Sunday July 27, 2014. Join us for activities throughout the day, including rocket launching, planetarium shows, a special Jr. Ranger program from the Minuiteman Missile National Historic Site, solar viewing, equipment demonstrations from Celestron, keynote speakers, and stargazing. We hope you'll stop by to see the Milky Way in Badlands National Park!

The milky way stretches over a vast system of sedimentary rock formations at Badlands National Park.
