The AAG will be hosting a tour of the northern constellation Cassiopeia. In Greek mythology, Cassiopeia was the queen of Aethiopia who boasted about her unrivaled beauty and how Jupiter punished her by placing her in the sky. Learn about Cassiopeia's daughter Andromeda and see our large neighboring galaxy by the same name. See several colorful double stars along with the lovely Double Cluster. A slim waxing Moon will grace our western sky shortly after sunset.

Oliver Lee Memorial State Park is located 12 miles south of Alamogordo.  Take US 54 south for about 8 miles then east on Dog Canyon Road for 4 miles.  Meet at the Group Shelter on the left as you enter the park.
