Tortugas Mountain Observatory Open House (virtual)
Dec 21 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Tortugas Mountain Observatory Open House (virtual) @ Virtual

The NMSU Department of Astronomy will host a virtual online open house from the Tortugas (A) Mountain Observatory Monday, Dec. 21. This will coincide with a rare conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, an event when the two planets will be as close together in the sky as they have been for hundreds of years. The virtual event will be held via Zoom videoconferencing and will include a short virtual tour of the recently refurbished Tortugas Mountain Observatory, followed by some remote imaging of Jupiter and Saturn, weather permitting, as well as a short presentation about connection with research on these gas giant planets.

The online event will start at 4:30 p.m. and last until around 6 p.m. Participants will need to download Zoom before joining.
