One of the things many in Palo Pinto County get to enjoy that is a rarity to most is dark nights. Giving us the ability to really see the stars in ways that most never have. With a tripod and a camera, you can see even more! Palo Pinto Country is roughly 45 minutes west of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It is the nearest area to the west you can go from DFW to start to really see the stars without or at least with little light pollution.
Mineral Wells State Park holds stargazing events all the time just for this reason. Here are some professional captures around Palo Pinto County. Some are public places and others are private but all are in Palo Pinto County! For the astrophotographers out there, the camera details and settings have been provided under each image.
There are many other great places in Palo Pinto County to see the night sky. When was the last time you looked at the stars?
