Look for this event in 2021!

The Mt. Helix Park Foundation and the San Diego Astronomy Association collaborate each year to bring stargazers a unique opportunity to view the night sky from one of the most beloved viewpoints in all of San Diego County. For one night, the public is invited to enter the gates after dark and witness the cosmos through high-resolution telescopes provided by SDAA members or to bring their own viewing devices. Scheduled dates typically align with one or more astrological phenomenon making the experience one to remember.  Visit the San Diego Astronomy Association's website for more information at
