Sign up for this hike/potluck thru the PEEC web link below.  

Join PEEC, astrophysicist Galen Gisler, and avid hiker Jean Dewart of the Los Alamos Mountaineers for a full moon hike and potluck dinner.  It's really a great evening to take a hike and learn about the stars - it turns out, when the moon is out, it is easier to learn the major stars and constellations.  

Participants will meet at the Los Alamos Nature center at 5:30 PM in the classroom for the potluck dinner. PEEC will provide water, cups, plates, and utensils. Participants should bring a dish to share. At about 6:30 PM, the group will carpool to the trailhead for a short hike to view the full moon and night sky. The hike will be about 2 miles, round-trip. We will finish hiking by about 8:30 PM and return to the nature center. Before the hike, Galen Gisler will also give participants a brief preview of the evening's sky in the planetarium!

Hikers should dress for the weather. Wear layers and bring a hat and gloves. Bring a headlamp or flashlight (red lights are preferred for better star viewing).

Sign up at:   There is a small fee to cover the use of the PEEC facilities.  

Hope you can make it
