CROWNPOINT, NEW MEXICO – In partnership with the National Park Service (NPS), Navajo Technical University (NTU) will be hosting a Star Party on December 6, 2013 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm at NTU’s Crownpoint campus.
The event will be free and open to the public and will include activities in outdoor stargazing with telescopes and indoor educational hands-on activities. Outdoor activities will be dependent on weather and viewing conditions, but NTU Education Outreach Director Alice Carron believes that the event will be fun and educational for students and community members.
We’re excited about engaging community members in this program because it brings together astronomers, culture heritage preservationists, Park Rangers, teachers, and learners of all ages,” explained Carron.
