October at the New Mexico Museum of Space History
October is an exciting time for the New Mexico Museum of Space History because of the Moon Over the Museum event. This event allows patrons to view the moon and the night sky through telescopes in the parking lot above the New Horizons Theater.
Along with NASA’s International Observe the Moon Night, the museum invites everyone to enjoy a beautiful and educational lunar experience for free, once a year. Of course, there’s much more out there than the moon to see, and some planets are also visible during the event.
If you want to learn about the sun, the stars, the seasons, and more, then you can visit the New Mexico Museum of Space History any day of the week for the Night Sky Live Digital Planetarium Show. A museum educator will take you on a magnificent journey through the universe, and you’ll see the planets and the constellations in a whole new light. Show times are at 11:55 am and 2:55 pm.
