There is a star party at the Etscorn Campus Observatory on the campus of New Mexico Tech every first Saturday of the month. The event starts an hour after the Sun sets. If the skies are clear we will look through several telescopes at interesting astronomical objects that are visible at that time of year. If it turns out to be cloudy or too windy to set up the telescopes, we will entertain and educate you via some really impressive imagery from several websites.
While you are at it, make it a day and night event by visiting the Very Large Array between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm for guided tours.
