Support Dark Skies

The Dark Skies Initiative helps to fund replacements and retrofits of lights in our community to keep the skies above West Texas full of stars for all to enjoy. 

Want to support dark skies? You can donate to the Dark Skies Initiative by clicking here and selecting "McDonald Observatory" and "Dark Skies Initiative" in the menus. 


McDonald Observatory thanks Big Bend Coffee Roasters and the Apache Corporation for their support of the Dark Skies Initiative.
