Best Stargazing: UT Astronomy Department Star Parties

If you're an astronomy nerd, someone who misses the view of the stars away from the city lights, or just the type of person who appreciates a beautiful view, then UT's "star parties" could be your higher calling. Completely free and held on the roof of Robert Lee Moore Hall on Wednesdays and Painter Hall on Fridays and Saturdays, this is a fantastic and unforgettable experience for people of all ages. So bring the family or a hot date, and see our solar system up close and personal through some state-of-the-art telescopes.

T. S. Painter Hall
