Lucky Stars: St. Patrick’s Day Astronomy Night on the Katy Prairie

  • Indiangrass Preserve 31950 Hebert Road Waller, TX, 77484 United States (map)

Join Katy Prairie Conservancy as we sip green drinks (to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day) and marvel at the vast, illuminated night skies of the Katy Prairie on the Indiangrass Preserve. The Fort Bend Astronomy Club will provide multiple indoor presentations throughout the event, telescopes for solar viewing in the late afternoon, and night sky viewing after dark. Join us as we observe the sun, the sunset, far away constellations, galaxies, and more!

For this special event, we will also provide the opportunity for solar viewing before sunset. For those who wish to come to both, you will have the opportunity to take in one of our spectacular prairie sunsets while waiting for nighttime viewing.

  • 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm - presentations and solar viewing
  • 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm - ongoing presentations
  • 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm - presentations and nighttime viewing
