Star Party at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History

2009 was the International Year of Astronomy as the world commemorated the 400th anniversary of Galileo Galilei’s use of a telescope to study the skies, and Johannes Kepler’s publication of Astronomia Nova. In celebration of modern astronomy’s quadricentennial, the Museum and the George P. and Cynthia W. Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics are joining with BRASS and the Brazos Valley Astronomy Club in inviting the whole community to share a magnificent evening of night sky viewing.

Regular admission for the star party is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students, 3 and under (and current Museum Friends) are free. The Museum will also be open for viewing and if you bring your own telescope, you get two dollars off admission!

The Star Party is located at the Brazos Center, 3232 Briarcrest Drive, Bryan, Texas 77802. A map of the location is on the Museum’s website at:
