October is Hill Country Night Sky Month!

The celebration is back for another month of proclamations, lighting renovations, contests, star parties, moon howls, and more. Join partners and communities from across the Hill Country as we pay tribute and our respects to one of our region’s most beloved features, the star-filled night sky. Tune in here for all the news, events, and updates on Night Sky Month 2021!

October is our annual, month-long celebration of the region’s most dazzling night-time feature — the star-twinkling, planet-glowing, comet-crossing night sky — where beauty and wonder abound.

Celebrate the Night Sky with us this October!

Hill Country Night Sky Month is a celebration of our region’s night skies and of the hard work that Hill Country communities do to preserve it.

So many ways to celebrate!
