Star Parties

Star Party

Star Parties are events hosted by the Mitchell Institute and the Texas A&M Astronomy Group. They are held at Simpson Drill Field Review Stand and outside of Sbisa Dining Hall (weather permitting).Portable telescopes are placed on campus providing the opportunity for students and area residents to observe the wonders and enchantment of the night sky. Through our computerized telescopes, star gazers can view the stunning detail of our Moon and its craters, view Jupiter and its moons, and gaze upon distant nebulae and distant galaxies.
