EVENT CANCELLED !!!!! DUE TO THE OSCILLATING MOVEMENT OF A COLD FRONT THAT MIGHT RETURN CLOUDS AND POSSIBLE SHOWS THIS EVENING, THE STAR GAZING EVENT WILL BE CANCELLED FOR THIS EVENING. The Mineola Nature Preserve in conjunction with The Astronomical Society of East Texas will present a STAR GAZING at the Mineola Nature Preserve on Friday, March 16, 2018. This is a free program and everyone is invited. The activity begins about 8:00 PM so you can see where we will be and will end about 10 PM. Try to arrive by 7 PM. The location will be at the Amphitheater next to the Pavilion. The program is a group exercise in identifying objects in the night sky that can be seen with binoculars or the naked eye (Naked Eye Astronomy). We could have a visit from the International Space Station and possible rare signals from Iridium flares that evening. This is a weather permitting program. In the event of inclement weather or cloud cover, the program will be cancelled. A “CANCELLED” notice will be posted in the “Calendar” page of the Society’s website: or our Facebook page on the date, a sign “NO STAR GAZING” will be posted at the Preserve entrance. Please keep an eye on the weather and dress appropriately for it. Weather is cooler now but wear clothing to ward off stray mosquitoes. If you bring mosquito repellant, do not bring aerosols; use wipes instead. For more information on this event and the Society, contact us at or text to 903-520-7338.
