TAAS COSMIC CARNIVAL!
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1:00-5:00PM
OPEN SPACE VISITOR CENTER
A CELEBRATION OF SCIENCE AND ASTRONOMY DAY!
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
The Albuquerque Astronomical Society and the delightful facility of the Open Space Visitor Center and its staff and volunteers, host the annual Cosmic Carnival to offer the public a view of the many science and astronomy organizations in New Mexico.
TAAS greets the guests with solar telescopes at the entrance to the OSVC before welcoming them into the lobby with a large TAAS display, ticket station for the Portable Planetarium shows, and "How Telescopes Work" demonstration.
On circulating through the building, each organization presents its own "specialty" at its station, some of which have interactive programs. More details on the exhibitors to follow soon.
The new TAAS portable planetarium will be in action in the Kiva Room for shows, so get your tickets early to enjoy the stars in the daytime and hear a polished presentation.
Telescopes of many types will be displayed on the back patio for inspection with members explaining the details.
In the evening, a star party will take place on the back patio from 6:00-9:00pm, with an astronomy talk at 7:00pm in the Kiva Room. A separate article will cover this event.
