Enjoy  the outdoor Theaters night time events under the dark starry desert skies in Joshua Tree.  Located in the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground.

Main events, we project live deep space astronomy images onto large 9 x 12 foot screens.  Other events we do are the Music Jam Astro Fest, Astronomy Fest & Star Parties & Solar Parties. 

During the summer months SCDVA (Southern California Desert Video Astronomers) hold star parties on Saturday evenings.  These parties are usually free or a minimal charge.  Go to to see an event schedule.

In addition we do private parties and special group events.  Also available is Astro camping either in tent, car, truck, van or RV.

All done to educate & promote astronomy in order to preserve the dark skies of the California Desert by creating an Astronomy Economy for the local businesses in Joshua Tree and surrounding areas.

Dark sky is good for humanity and the Planet. We are supporters of wise and considerate use of our natural resources and the impact that we have on our environment and the future well being of the Earth. We hope this idea will be one that all people will share in to fix the negative things left upon us from the past and to care about the way we build our future.
