Star Party--Frisco Commons Park

Don D, our resident star gazing authority, hosts a monthly stargazing party. After you have had your fill at Pub night, come gaze at the stars with us!

There are restrooms at this location.

If you have a scope bring it out.

If its warm bring plenty of water with you! If it's cold out be sure to dress warmly as it can get very cold when you are just standing around on cold pavement. Good shoes, a hat, ear coverings, and layers are your best bet. You can always take off what's not needed.

(BTW this is only a stargazing party - no food or drink required.  And you do not have to show up at 8 pm).

More details, including directions to the Park, are available at:
Frisco Star Party

The site gives directions from Preston, from the Tollway you turn right on Main (FM 720) and go for about 1.5 miles through Old Frisco, past the old watertower to Meadow Lane on the left. A median prevents you from turning left directly onto Meadow, so you can take the next left into the parking lot of Liberty Baptist Church and go back to Meadow.


NOTE: If it is overcast or the weather is severe the event will be canceled. You can check the TAS website.

    It was fun. I saw some things I had never seen before.

      John, there's much more where that came from. I need to develop a tactful way of switching objects while there's a line.

    Thanks Mark and Don for the event. It was fun revisiting my old astronomy hobby of providing a small window to the wonders of the universe for the public.
