Explore January’s Night Skies In The Planetarium

 Full-dome film “Mysteries of the Unseen World”shows Saturday.

LOS ALAMOS, NM, January 3, 2019 – Join Steve Becker in the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium this Friday evening to explore the night skies coming up in January. Becker will give audience members an interactive tour of the heavens that will highlight the planets, star patterns and constellations that may be readily observed throughout the month. This talk begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4, and is perfect for stargazers who want to learn more.

On Saturday, Jan. 5, the nature center will play the full-dome film “Mysteries of the Unseen World” in the planetarium at 2 p.m. This vibrant film reveals the many wonders of our world that can only be seen with the help of technology and special filming techniques. It explores the mysteries of things that are too fast, too slow and too small to be seen with the naked eye.

Due to the winter storm Los Alamos has received, parking is limited at the nature center. Please arrive in advance for these events and use caution when walking in the parking lots and sidewalks. The Los Alamos Nature Center plans to remain open for its regular hours and continue to host scheduled programs, but please visit peecnature.org or call 505-662-0460 for the most up-to-date information on possible closures and cancellations.
