(Cedar City, UT) - To celebrate and share the beauty of our dark night skies, Cedar Breaks will be hosting a series of Star Parties. Star Parties will be held at the Point Supreme Overlook on Saturday nights beginning July 7 through September 1. In addition to the Saturday night events, Full Moon Star Parties will occur on July 3 and August 1 and 31. The spectacular annual Perseids meteor shower will also be highlighted with Star Party activities on August 12. Activities will begin at 9:30 pm during July and 9 pm during August and September. A constellation tour and telescope viewing through several large telescopes will be facilitated by park staff and astronomy volunteers. A night hike will be offered on full moon nights in addition to the regular Star Party activities. Visitors who have their own telescopes are invited to bring them to the Star Party.
