The Las Cruces Museum of Nature & Science invites astronomers of all ages to join us for three days of virtual events comprising this year’s “Tombaugh Day” event.

Virtual programs will take place on Zoom and Facebook live @LCMuseums. To receive a link to the Zoom webinar please email Stephanie at SHawkins@las-cruces.org.

“NASA’s Artemis Program – Returning to the Moon,” will be presented by Johnson Space Center at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021.

NASA’s Artemis program aims to land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024. Those steps on the moon’s surface will bring us closer to understanding lunar resources and the history of the universe. The mission will also bring us closer to expanding human exploration of the Solar System, including the first human mission to Mars. Access the live webinar at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82633583229 or at www.facebook.com/lcmuseums.

“Virtual Tour of Goddard Space Flight Center,” will be presented by the NASA Goddard Visitor Center at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5, 2021.

With facilities in Maryland, Virginia, New Mexico, Texas, New York and West Virginia, Goddard is a place where a mission can go from start to finish: from planning to building to testing and even launching. Goddard is also involved in nearly every NASA science mission involving Earth science, planetary science, heliophysics – the study of the Sun and our local space environment – and astrophysics. Participants will receive an overview of these areas as well as engage in focused discussions on current missions. Access the live webinar at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86580057880 or at www.facebook.com/lcmuseums.
