Learn what will be coming up in March’s night skies this Friday, March 1 at the Los Alamos Nature Center. Astronomer Steve Becker will give audience members an interactive tour of the heavens and highlight planets, star patterns and constellations that may be readily observed throughout the month. This event begins at 7 p.m. and is perfect for beginner stargazers who would like to learn more.
In addition to this talk, the nature center will show the full-dome film “National Parks Adventure” on Saturday, March 2 at 2 p.m. This vibrant film explores beautiful views and incredible adventures in our nation’s parks. The film was brought to Los Alamos by C.B. Fox, Metzger’s Hardware and the Delle Foundation, with additional funding from Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
