My kids love to look at the stars and moon every time we are outside at night. When I found out that UTSA has free stargazing with astronomers every first Friday, I knew we would have to check it out!
During First Friday Stargazing, you get to use university telescopes and equipment to look at the heavens, as long as the weather allows it. The experienced university astronomers will help point out various astronomical objects that may appear in the sky for that given time of the year.
“The Curtis Vaughan Jr. Observatory is located on the 4th floor of the Flawn Science building on the UTSA Main Campus. After exiting the elevator, look for the doors to the outside star party observation deck adjacent to the observatory. The public is encouraged to park in the Ximenes Ave Garage which is close to the Flawn Science Building”.
If you have your own telescope, you are encouraged to bring it too!
