Seeing the Milky Way with the naked eye can be eye straining at best, but when you invite astronomers (with their fancy telescopes) from all over the world and then invite West Texans to come and join the gathering, you’ve got yourself a ‘Stars and Skies of Texas: Star Gazing Party’ West Texas style.
