Pajarito Astronomers Host Dark Night Viewing Tonight

The Pajarito Astronomers will be holding a Los Alamos County-Sponsored Dark Night starting at 8:15 p.m. (sunset) Saturday, June 1 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. The planets Mercury, Mars, Jupiter (with its moons) and Saturn will potentially be visible during the evening.

There will be a tour of the spring and summer 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.
