Pajarito Astronomers News:

Los Alamos County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Divisions have partnered up with the Pajarito Astronomers for the Dark Night program.

Anyone with an interest in star gazing and the chance to look through a telescope is invited to come out to Spirio Soccer Fields tonight, Sept. 24 at Overlook Park in White Rock.

Arrive at nightfall for viewing, or around sunset for setting up. Jupiter and Saturn will be visible most of the night as well as lots of lovely stars, star clusters, and deep space objects. If arriving at night and approaching Spirio Fields, please use parking lights if possible. Bring a red flashlight for safety.

This gathering is weather permitting. The remaining Dark Night dates for 2022 are September 24th, October 22nd, and November 19th.
