Each Friday night , during normal Fall and Spring Semesters, the UNM Campus Observatory, just two blocks north of Lomas on Yale, offers the opportunity to the public to observe from their dome with their Meade 14" telescope. TAAS members are regulars on site with their telescopes to show the sights of the evening and answer questions.
Check the UNM Observatory website (http://physics.unm.edu/pandaweb/observatory/) or call their Hotline number 277-1446 after 3:00pm on Friday to check for closures or for more information. Parking and admission are both free.
We thank you in advance for arriving before dark to park to avoid directing light to the observing area and for using only red lights after dark to preserve night vision.
