Join us at Jemez Historic Site to learn more about astronomy! These events will focus on activities related to different ways people in the ancient past viewed the day and night sky. There will be presentations on ancient astronomy and modern-day astronomy to explain how people of the past interpreted the sky and how modern-day astronomy can tell what is out there. It will also include modern-day activities like safely viewing the sun using a telescope.

Included with admission of $7/adult. Children 16 and younger are free. Also free to Museum of New Mexico Foundation members, Friends of Coronado and Jemez members, Native/Tribal affiliations, disabled veterans, and foster families.
