Do you want to learn more about the cosmos? Do you ever wonder how we know about distances in space or how stars are created or how elements are formed?
Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is providing astronomy shows in the Los Alamos Nature Center planetarium at 7 p.m., Friday, May 13 and 20.
Each astronomy show will investigate a different aspect of the cosmos and allow participants to explore the universe with a local astronomer or astrophysicist as their guide. This astronomy show is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Tickets are available by calling or stopping by the nature center. Seating is limited.
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. To learn more, visit here.
