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.
