City of Rocks is located between Deming and Silver City.
Attendees will observe highlights of the late-March sky, including Mars rising at 8:43 p.m., just northeast of Spica.
Also, Jupiter, Orion and Sirius have passed the meridian, and Ursa Major is high in the east.
The event begins with a night sky tour, followed by views of deep sky objects through a high-powered telescope. Matt Wilson will be the presenter.
The program is viewed in a dark sky setting beginning at 8:30 p.m., and attendees should arrive at the park at sunset, which is at about 7:25 p.m., so they can become familiar with their surroundings before nightfall.
The program will end at about 10:05 p.m.
