Event Navigation

The San Juan College Planetarium’s AstroFriday presentation for Friday, June 21, is Navajo Skies. Show times are at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.

The San Juan College Planetarium is proud to present “Sharing the Skies”, a recently produced fulldome planetarium presentation of Navajo Astronomy by Dr. Nancy Maryboy and Dr. David Begay. Eight major Navajo constellations will be revealed, as well as several others never before seen in the show’s previous version. The presentation will last approximately 35 minutes and will be followed by a live, guided sky tour showing the night sky of June. Come and find out which Diné constellations you will be able to view in the real evening sky.

Winter sky maps will be given out while supplies last.  There is no admission charge, and no reservations are taken or required, but there is a maximum seating capacity of 60 in the Planetarium, so seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to preserve dark-adaption, no one will be admitted late once the show has started.

Weather permitting, a free public stargaze with telescopes will be held at 9:30 p.m. in the courtyard behind the Planetarium, after the last show. The Stargaze will last a maximum of one hour.

There is no capacity limit for the stargaze.
