Presented by Steve Goldberg

November brings autumn to Texas, and with it, anticipation for next year’s Texas Star Party (TSP). That’s because those who have been to TSP know that registration starts in the fall for next year’s event, most who have experienced TSP want to go back again! This year, the anticipation is even greater than normal, as TSP 2020 was unfortunately canceled due to the Covid  lock-down.

Who should Attend?

Many HAS members have not yet been able to make the a spring trip to TSP and the dark skies of West Texas. New members interested in expanding their astronomy experience need to know what it’s all about before making the commitment to attend TSP. The rest of us will enjoy the experience of past TSPs to join in the anticipation of TSP 2021. Take a tour of one of the best star parties in the nation!

Steve Goldberg (and his wife Amelia) are long time HAS members, and have served in the past as TSP Staff members. Please join Steve Goldberg who will give us a virtual tour of TSP, and tell you what you need to know about TSP.
