Pinnacles National Monument Hosts Star Party

Pinnacles National Monument – Saturday, July 10, Pinnacles Partnership, in association with Pinnacles National Monument, gives you an opportunity to thrill at the sight of the heavens through telescopes, as Galileo first did some 400 years ago. Enjoy views of the beautiful ringed planet Saturn, along with distant nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. Appreciate the stars and constellations as never before as you view the night sky away from city lights under truly dark skies.

     Park in the overflow lot on the park's East Side near the Pinnacles Visitor Center in the campground. The scopes will be set up in the Group Site area at sites 128 and 129 and the program begins at 9:00pm and goes until 11:00pm.

A $5 per vehicle entrance fee to Pinnacles is required, but there is no charge for the programs. Come out to experience the natural world under a wide-open sky!

    General park information can be obtained by visiting or by calling 831-389-4485.
