Best Party With the Stars – North: Fountainwood Observatory
(Critics Picks, Outdoors & Recreation)
It isn't often that the public gets to look through a research-quality telescope, but once a month during the academic year Fountainwood Observatory holds free star parties, and you're invited. Attendees are guided through the night skies with Southwestern University faculty and students, as well as members of the Williamson County Astronomy Club.
