Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is holding a star show at 7 p.m., Friday Nov. 6, in the Los Alamos Nature Center Planetarium.
The show will cover celestial objects easily viewed through binoculars throughout the month of November including a neighboring galaxy, planets, star clusters, nebulae, and double stars.
After the planetarium show, venture outside for a brief tour of the evening constellations, weather permitting.
The November 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. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for the planetarium show. To help acclimate to the planetarium’s night
sky, no one will be admitted after the show begins.
Our monthly night sky shows are offered on the first Friday of the month, aside from holidays. Each show focuses on what is visible in the sky that month.
The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) was founded in 2000 to serve the community of Los Alamos. It offers people of all ages a way to enrich their lives by strengthening their connections to our canyons, mesas, mountains, and skies.
PEEC operates the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road, holds regular programs and events, and hosts a number of interest groups from birding to hiking to butterfly watching. PEEC activities are open to everyone; however, members receive exclusive benefits such as discounts on programs and merchandise. Annual memberships start at $35.
