PEEC: Preview February’s Night Skies Friday

Full-dome film National Parks Adventure shows Saturday.

Join Paul Arendt in the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium at 7 p.m. Friday, for an interactive tour of February’s night skies.

In this talk, Arendt will highlight the planets, star patterns and constellations that may be readily observed throughout the month. This program is perfect for beginner stargazers who want to learn more about the night skies.

In addition to this talk, the nature center will show the full-dome film National Parks Adventure at 2 p.m. Saturday. This beautiful film highlights exciting adventures and incredible views of our nation’s park. The movie was brought to Los Alamos by CB FOX, Metzger’s Hardware and the Delle Foundation with additional funding from Manhattan Project National Historical Park.

Seating is limited for this talk and movie, so call the nature center at 505.662.0460 or stop by to reserve tickets. Admission for both events is $6 for adults and $4 for kids. Events in the planetarium are not recommended for children under age 4.
