At 7 p.m., Oct. 13 Steve Becker will reveal the celestial objects in our night sky. Then, the fascinating planetarium film Mysteries of the Unseen World will play at 2 p.m. Oct. 14 and 15.
These planetarium programs take place at the Los Alamos Nature Center and are made possible thanks to the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC).
During the Friday, Oct. 13 show, Steve Becker will point out the constellations, planets, and other celestial objects visible in the October night sky. The audience will be able to enjoy their beauty from our planetarium and have an introduction to the Pajarito Astronomer’s Dark Night program Oct. 21.
Mysteries of the Unseen World allows us to discover what is normally too fast, too slow, too small, or outside the visible spectrum. Thanks to technology, these normally invisible aspects of our world can be viewed on the planetarium dome at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 14 and 15.
The Los Alamos Nature Center is open for the holiday and will be open regular hours this month: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays as well as 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. The nature center is open late on Tuesdays, until 8 p.m., closed Thursdays for regular maintenance.
