Star Party at Rancho de las Cabras
5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Join park rangers and the San Antonio League of Sidewalk Astronomers for a Star Party at Rancho de las Cabras from 5:30-9:00 pm on Saturday, January 21. Rancho is located at 375 County Road 144, Floresville, TX 78114. The site, which is part of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, was the ranch associated with Mission Espada. The Spanish colonial missions established in this area in the early 1700s were communities that also included homes, workshops, ranches, and farms, in addition to the churches. Starry night skies are components of the special places the National Park Service protects and San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is no exception.

Kid’s activities and hot chocolate will be provided and the San Antonio League of Sidewalk Astronomers (SALSA) will provide their expertise while assisting participants in using SALSA’s telescopes to enjoy the night sky. Additional telescopes are welcome! Participants should bring a flashlight (red cellophane will be provided), snacks, chairs and dress for the weather. Parking on site is limited, carpooling is encouraged. The event is weather permitting. Event cancellation info will be posted on Facebook.

The Star Party is sponsored by a grant from the National Environmental Education Foundation with additional support from Los Compadres de San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, the San Antonio League of Sidewalk Astronomers, the Wilson County Historical Society and the Floresville High School Junior Historian Club.
