Experience The Beauty Of A Truly Dark Night Sky At Joshua Tree National Park Night Sky Festival

Those twinkling little stars in all their glory.  Countless and jaw-droppingly amazing.

As the National Park Service says, “The night sky is a glittering dome peppered with stars, planets, and passing meteors—but most people no longer get to see it.”

Unfortunately, artificial light and pollutants found in urban and suburban environments has drowned out the magic of the dark night sky, robbing us of our connection to the stars – a connection that was critical in many ways throughout the far majority of man’s time on earth.

Lucky for us, Joshua Tree National Park boasts some of the darkest nights in Southern California, and they’ll be celebrating them at the 2017 Night Sky Festival.

 

The festival will run from approximately 5 pm on Friday, November 10 to 2 pm on Sunday, November 12.

It will include solar viewing and an astronomy fair by day, as well astronomy programs and telescope viewing of our universe by night–weather permitting.

Events will take place at various locations, but particularly in the vicinity of the Oasis Visitor Center near the park’s North Entrance in Twentynine Palms, CA.

No reservations are required for the event, only for local lodging or camping.
