For all those adults, kids and families who missed last week’s PEEC Star Party or would like to see more, PEEC astronomers are going to repeat it at 7 p.m. Monday March 26.

One highlight will be the crescent Moon of four days old, which should be pretty spectacular through the telescope.  

Venus, Jupiter and Mars will still be there, and the Orion Nebula will be well placed for a great view including its “arms.”  

Venus is best seen in twilight because its extreme brightness dazzles the telescope viewer.  

It should be quite a sight since

N.M. 4 Paving Falls Behind Due to Hot Mix Plant Problem

on March 23, 2012 - 10:03am
This is the back end of a machine called the "Shuttle Buggy" that has been parked at La Vista and N.M. 4. Bottom-dump semi trucks drop a line of the asphalt mix down the center of the road they are about to pave. The Shuttle Buggy comes along and scoops the asphalt up, mixes it, and deposits the prepared asphalt mix out the conveyor on the back end into the waiting maw of the paving (lay-down) machine. This way the delivery truck schedule is not dependent on the rate of paving lay-down. Photo by TK Thompson/ladailypost.com
 
Crews were scheduled to begin paving the south two lanes of N.M.
