On October 28th-30th, Joshua Tree National Park is hosting a new event called the Night Sky Festival.  In the past, the Park has organized “Star Parties” to share the beautiful night sky with visitors and residents interested in learning more about astronomy.  The Park offers a dark sky unspoiled by artificial light and atmospheric pollutants.

In celebration of the 100th birthday of the National Park Service, Joshua Tree National Park is organizing a special event to celebrate the beauty and mystery of the night sky.  Special guests include cultural speakers, astronomers, scientists, night-sky enthusiasts, artists, volunteers, junior rangers and visitors.

More details will be posted on the Joshua Tree National Park website.  Click here for details.
