Learn more about the stars and constellations visible this month at Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s star show at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 7 in the Los Alamos Nature Center Planetarium.
With physicist Paul Arendt as the host, attendees will enjoy a tour of celestial objects—star patterns, constellations, planets, and deep sky objects— easily viewed through binoculars this month. Arendt will also include a special presentation about our local group of galaxies and how some of these bodies are known to interact with one another.
The October Night Sky planetarium show is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Tickets are available by calling or stopping by the nature center. Seating is limited. Planetarium shows are suitable for ages four and up. For more information about this and other PEEC programs, visit www.peecnature.org, email email@example.com or call 505.662.0460.
