WELCOME TO PRESIDIO, TEXAS
The Land of Excitement
Our annual Independence Day Celebration in Presidio will be Sunday, July 3rd, 9 p.m. till 1 a.m at Daly Park. (Behind Harper Hardware.)
Enjoy the music of Los Jinetes and the Resonators, followed by our traditional fireworks show!
Summer nights in Presidio are ideal for viewing the Dark Skies of Texas.
June’s evening sky offers a bright outline of the path that the Sun will follow in a few months. The stars Regulus and Spica lie quite close to that path, known as the ecliptic. And three bright planets also line up along the ecliptic. From west to east, they are brilliant Jupiter (between Regulus and Spica), orange Mars (in the south), and golden Saturn (to the left of Mars). The Sun will pass close to Regulus in August, Spica in October, and the current positions of Mars and Saturn in December.

Waves in the upper atmosphere sculpt a giant storm at Saturn’s north pole into a hexagonal shape. This true-color view was snapped by the Cassini spacecraft in 2013. Saturn is putting in its best showing of the year in late May and early June, shining like a bright golden star not far from even brighter Mars. [NASA/JPL/SSI]
