The Night Sky at Comanche Springs
Located in north central Texas, in the heart of Big Ranch Country, the Comanche Springs Astronomy Campus is a 700-acre facility that is home to telescopes, observatories, and lots of wide open spaces. Once a Comanche bison hunting ground, Comanche Springs Campus is also home to many native species—like the Texas horned lizard, coyotes, deer, and jackrabbits—and is also in a "dark corridor," making it ideal for stargazing. The public is welcome to visit for "star parties," or to enjoy Star Field and other aspects of the campus. Guests can spend the night in one of Comanche Springs four bunkhouses, which together can accommodate up to 65 guests.
