Night Sky Events, Carlsbad Caverns National Park

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

This summer Carlsbad Caverns National Park will be hosting several Star Party events. The park is a perfect spot for viewing the wonders of the night sky due to its location away from the lights of the local communities.

Weather permitting; telescopes will be available for viewing the celestial night sky and will provide an opportunity for visitors to see for themselves what is visible in the universe above.

Ranger guided programs will be available to discuss a variety of topics from nocturnal creatures, cultural folklore, and astronomy.

The public is welcome. No fee or advance reservations are necessary. Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather. Since bright headlights impair night vision, we ask that all participants arrive early.

These events will be held in the main East parking lot in front of the visitor center, with parking limited to the West lot nearest the Cavern restaurant. The visitor center and cave will not be open.

  • June 9
  • July 14
  • August 11
