Desert Starlight

June 20, 2009 @ 12:00 am EDT

My name is Kathryn Law and I work for New Mexico State Parks as an Interpretive Ranger in the southeastern part of the state. During the last eight years, I have been presenting star parties on a regular basis in partnership with volunteers.
I am planning and coordinating our sixth annual astronomy weekend at Brantley Lake State Park located about 12 miles north of Carlsbad. We have named this event “Desert Starlight” and hope to attract stargazers from throughout New Mexico and Texas. This year’s dates are June 19 - 20 and I have contacted your organization to help get the word out. I hope that you will be able to post the following news release in your newsletter or on your website.

I hope to meet many of you at Brantley Lake State Park in June!
