George Observatory

Venue Info

Forget parking your car in that desolate parking lot, George Observatory is where you really want to be looking for constellations. Located in Brazos State Park and operated by the Houston Museum of Natural Science, this is a prime spot for stargazing outside of the city that's open to the public every Saturday. This spot boasts a planetarium and three domes telescopes (the 36-inch one is one of the largest public-use 'scopes in the country) for amateur and professional space-nuts alike to find stars, planets, meteorites and galaxies.
