Space photo booth and youth crafts, plus information tables from International Dark-Sky Assn. and other supporting organizations.
3 Afternoon Astronomy Lectures
Star Party with Music
Add-ons include boxed lunch by Bruce's Coyote Kitchen, VIP parking, and glow-in-the-dark t-shirts.
Tickets are available ONLY on a pre-purchase basis. NO TICKETS at the door.
Red flashlights only during the Star Party. Please help everyone to appreciate the best night sky ever!
Shuttle Transportation included in price of tickets. VIP parking available for purchase in advance.
Accessible Transporation available for people with disabilities. All Accessible spots are free at the Luckie Park Community Center in 29 Palms. An accessible van, on an approximately 40-minute round trip schedule, will transport wheelchair users and special needs guests to the drop-off spot on the accessible route to telescopes, music, and constellation tours on Sky’s The Limit campus.
VIP spots on the STL campus are not on the accessible route. They are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis, with the earliest reservations closest to the first telescope position, but still requiring a short walk. Latest reservations are assigned spots closest to the campus entry, but furthest from the activities.
Wheelchair users and special needs guests may be dropped off at the accessible route by companions who will then park in their assigned VIP spot. Those companions will be able to pick up at the same spot at any time during the evening.
The advantage to purchasing a VIP parking spot is maximum control over arrival and departure during the evening. Shuttle service will run approximately every 20 minutes; vans approximately every 40 minutes.
