Moon Phases and Star Places with The Albuquerque Astronomical Society

It's a Phase

Image by Clarke Condé

One of the most challenging parts of growing up is confronting the unknown. Gaining some kind of grasp of how you relate to the universe you were born into is a crucial part of adolescence. That is why youngsters for centuries have turned to the planisphere. Building your own planisphere is something 9 to 12-year-olds do for free on Thursday, June 6 from 3 to 4pm at the South Broadway Library, and it's a rite of passage for many. The Moon Phases and Star Places with The Albuquerque Astronomical Society event can be a critical step to adulthood and, like most things in adulthood, registration is required. For more information, see abqlibrary.org. (Clarke Condé)
