Sky’s the Limit Observatory and Nature Center is located on the northern edge of Joshua Tree National Park, south of the town of Twentynine Palms. The observatory’s location in the north of the park means that it’s distant from the cities on the southern end of Joshua Tree, which are eroding the quality of the night sky. The Milky Way is still visible and the campus is always open. Star parties are held on Saturdays, and amateur and professional astronomers can bring their telescopes anytime for personal projects or astrophotography. Pads are provided. The observatory recommends bringing your own water and a jacket.
