[ARCHIVED] Dreamy Moon Gazing with Branigan Library and the Astronomical Society of Las Cruces

Moon Gazing

Join Thomas Branigan Memorial Library and the Astronomical Society of Las Cruces in Albert Johnson Park, 896 N. Main St., at 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, 2022, for a romantic moon gazing.
 
 Learn about the moon and using telescopes. The library will provide a celestial-inspired selection of romance titles and astronomy books.
 
 The Astronomical Society of Las Cruces (ASLC) was formed in 1951 by a group of dedicated astronomers, including Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered Pluto just 21 years earlier. For 70 years, ASLC has been sharing a little bit of the universe with our community under our beautiful southern New Mexico skies.
 
 The club has a variety of ongoing observation, education, and public outreach programs, including a public Moon Gaze each month, a monthly dark sky observation at Leasburg Dam State Park, countless star parties, and educational programs for schools, scouts, and various organizations.
 
 This program is part of Branigan Memorial Library’s month-long Read-a-Romance Series.
