Stars Over Texas: 5 Nights a Camera Caught Magic

By  | 

Whether you stand there in awe alone, or you enjoy a star-party with friends and family (or maybe that special someone), the stars over Texas are a sight for sore eyes. Many times a picture simply won’t do it justice, but here are 5 times that a camera was quicker than the eye and captured pure stardust over the Texas night sky:

1. The Milky Way Over West Texas

If you happen to be camping in the Big Bend area, bring along your camera! The stars dance out there.

Designed for just such a night, the observatory allows many an opportunity to view the Heavens on clear, starry nights.
