Astronomy for kids!

Join us throughout the year when we host special astronomy programs! Kids can participate in the astronomy raffle for a chance to win night sky prizes. We have kid-sized telescopes available for exploring the galaxy, and kids are welcome to bring their own telescopes and share their galactic expertise with others.

Program announcements will be posted here when events are scheduled. For more information, call 505-876-2783.
