Public Astronomy Dark Night Saturday, Sept. 24

PAJARITO ASTRONOMERS News:

The Pajarito Astronomers is holding a County-sponsored Dark Night starting at 7 p.m. (sunset) Saturday, Sept. 24 at Spirio Soccer Field, 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 summer and fall 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. As we are in a late monsoon season, the dark night is weather-permitting. Call Steve at 505.662.3252 for information.
