Fun events this week

  • University of Texas’ stargazing. Kids love exploring their universe, and if you can’t get out to the McDonald Observatory in Fort Davis, you can still see the stars closer to home. The University of Texas’ stargazing nights allow your kids to look through a telescope at stars and even planets like Saturn. Wednesday nights, viewings are held at the 16-inch telescope on the 17th floor of the Robert Lee Moore Hall building. Friday and Saturday nights, viewings are at Painter Hall’s 9-inch telescope at 8 p.m. Telescopes are delicate equipment, so this is an event that you’ll want to provide hands-on supervision, parents. 8 p.m. Wednesdays. Free. 2515 Speedway. 512-471-5007, outreach.as.utexas.edu/public/parties.html.
  • Austin Nature and Science Center.

Next week in Austin360

It seems as if a new restaurant or food trailer opens every seven minutes in our bustling food scene. Next week, we’re honoring 10 of the stalwarts in the city, places that have been open at least 10 years and consistently deliver a good meal and a good time.
