Here’s a chance to ponder your place in the universe (what you determine is on you, but your Instagram follower count is probably less important than you think….just sayin’), eat entirely too many tacos, and a reason to actually stop in Lewisville.

Star Parties  | Fort Worth | Monthly

There’s nothing like the simple act of looking up at the night sky to elicit awe and wonder…and to be reminded that you’re a mere fleeting pin prick of consciousness, clinging to a rock that orbits an ordinary star while hurdling through the darkness of an unimaginable vast and indifferent Universe that is perpetually expanding.

Oh, and in about 5 billion years the sun will expand in it’s death throes and engulf the Earth, so that thing you’re worried about doesn’t really matter anyway.

Where were we? Oh yeah – Star parties! The Fort Worth Astronomical Society hosts monthly public star parties at the Tandy Hills Nature Area in Fort Worth.

Astronomical Society members volunteer their time and telescopes to educate the public about the night sky.

Star parties are also excellent opportunities for those new to astronomy as they give the beginner a chance to use different kinds of equipment.

So go get humbled.
