The Pajarito Astronomers will hold a County-Sponsored Dark Night at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 21 at Spirio Soccer Field, Overlook Park. Weather permitting, the public is invited to come out, wander among the telescopes, and star gaze.
A crescent moon, Mercury, Saturn with its rings and moons, Uranus, Neptune and some Orionid meteors will potentially be visible during the evening. There will be a tour of the summer and fall constellations, the Milky Way, and there will be telescope views of double stars, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Viewing will end before midnight.
