Night Sky Viewing Event
Come join us for a night under the stars
Join us for an exceptional Dark Sky experience. Capulin was named a Gold Tier Dark Sky Park by the International Dark-Sky Association in 2016. Capulin Volcano holds Dark Sky viewing most Saturday nights during the Summer months, and select nights during Fall, Winter, and Spring. Giant telescopes are provided by us, and the dark northeastern New Mexico skies by nature. You will see planets, galaxies, nebula, and other amazing sights all with your own eyes.
Capulin Volcano is at a higher altitude of over 6,000 feet. Nights can get chilly even in summer. A jacket, long pants, and closed-toe shoes are recommended to attend a Dark Sky program. No reservations are needed. Call 575-278-2201 for more information. Dark Sky programs may be changed or canceled due to weather, check the astronomical forecast for more information.
