The Astronomical Society of the Desert will conduct “sky tours” and direct observations of the night sky through telescopes and giant binoculars. Hosted by the Astronomical Society of the Desert. For more details or information visit their website at

When it becomes full darkness, black lights will be used to seek out the various night creatures inhabiting the desert. Some creatures that might be found are: scorpions, tarantulas, lizards, geckos, spiders, owls, jackrabbits, snakes and maybe a coyote. This is a family event. Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Bring water and wear closed-toed shoes. If you have a black light bring it along. If not, there will be a few to share.
