Explore January’s night skies

-A A +A

Join Steve Becker in the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium today to explore the night skies this month.

Becker will give audience members an interactive tour of the heavens that will highlight the planets, star patterns and constellations that may be readily observed throughout the month.

This talk begins at 7 p.m. on Friday and is perfect for stargazers who want to learn more.

In addition to this talk, the nature center will play the full-dome film “Mysteries of the Unseen World” in the planetarium on Saturday at 2 p.m.

This vibrant film reveals the many wonders of the world that can only be seen with the help of technology and special filming techniques. It explores the mysteries of things that are too fast, too slow and too small to be seen with the naked eye.

Due to the winter storm Los Alamos has received, parking is limited at the nature center.

The public is encouraged to arrive in advance for these events and use caution when walking in the parking lots and sidewalks.

Seating is limited for both the talk and movie, so please call the nature center at 662-0460 or stop by to reserve tickets.

Admission for both events is $6 for adults and $4 for kids. Events in the planetarium are not recommended for children under age 4.
