Join Pajarito Environmental Education Center from 7:30-9 p.m. Sunday at the White Rock Overlook Park ball fields, to see a comet, Jupiter, galaxies and more.
PEEC will have several telescopes set up for viewing and the event is free and open to the public.
Comet Pan-STARRS might be in the sky right after sundown. After the comet sets, Jupiter will come into view. Participants will also be able to see several galaxies, the Orion Nebula and open and globular clusters and what is called zodiacal light. Zodiacal light is sunlight scattered off interplanetary dust in the inner solar system.
Before and during the viewing, astronomers from PEEC will discuss the shape of the solar system and galaxy and point out how each object participants are seeing fits into the astronomical big picture.
Be sure to bundle up, as it will be cold, especially once the sun goes down.
