There's not a ton of stuff to look at on the desert ground, so why not turn your attention to the vast New Mexican skies and help astronomers search for asteroids and comets? This Tuesday, March 12, attend a free presentation at the Museum of Natural History and Science to learn how to Search for Asteroids From Home. Participants are given access to free software and taught how to take photos of asteroids and comets using research telescopes. Home astronomers of all ages are welcome to take part in this exciting citizen science project being held at the STEM Lecture Hall starting at 12:30pm. (Joshua Lee)
