The Pajarito Astronomers will be holding a County-Sponsored Dark Night starting at 5:45 p.m., (sunset) Saturday, Nov. 5 at Spirio Soccer Field in Overlook Park in White Rock.
Weather permitting, the public is invited to come out, wander among the telescopes, and star gaze. Five planets will potentially be visible during the evening: Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. There will be a tour of the late-summer and fall and early-winter constellations, 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. Call Steve at 505.662.3252 for information.
