McDonald Observatory

By far one of the most spectacular experiences in Texas, participants and volunteers at Trans-Pecos Ultra receive a complimentary ticket to the “Star Party” at the world renowned McDonald Observatory on Friday before the race. The tour includes night sky constellation tours and views of celestial objects through a number of telescopes varying in size up to a 24-inch Ritchey–Chrétien telescope in the Rebecca Gale Telescope Park at the Visitors Center. Are you ready to sleep under the stars?
