We hope you will join us for this amazing, family-friendly evening of astronomy!  Our evening begins at 6pm with Marlon Magdalena from the Pueblo of Jemez giving a program entitled, "Looking to the Skies: Ancient Astronomers of the Southwest."  Mr. Magdalena will be discussing Pueblo beliefs about certain astronomical objects from his perspective; he also makes and plays his own flutes.  Following the talk, Park Rangers will offer a guided tour of the ruins.  As the skies darken, we'll have telescopes available for guided night sky viewing.  We will look at planets and various deep sky objects and will also do a star walk.  You won't want to miss this incredible evening!
