Joshua Tree is a dark sky community which makes it a perfect location for night sky viewing. For Babes Ride Out 6 we have invited back the Southern California Desert Video Astronomers to host an evening of looking at the stars. They will have deep space telescopes available for viewing an amazing array of celestial bodies as well as be available to talk space with BRO6 attendees. AND the Orionid meteor shower will be putting on quite a show all weekend. This is a must see experience and will take place from 7-11pm on Both Friday 10/19 and Saturday 10/20 of BRO6 weekend.

Welcome to the World famous "Joshua Tree Astronomy Arts Theater" where we share the adventure of exploring our Cosmos through some of the most powerful astronomical equipment and technology available.
JTAAT is the World's one and only live deep space astronomy theater where the images we capture live have been called "Hubble like "!
Visitors will see Galaxies, Nebulae, Stars and Planets projected on to our giant 24 foot screen as we tour the night sky searching for deep space wonders.
Our powerful visual telescopes will be available to bring images of amazement to everyone. If you have never seen the Rings of Saturn with your own eyes, get ready!
We will tour the beautiful Joshua Tree night sky pointing out the constellations of the Zodiac and add stories of Mythology as we share the science and lore of the stars.
