After observing for two nights, Haverford decided to explore more of New Mexico and ventured down to the White Sands National Monument for some fun in the sun.
While there, we played catch:
Went sand sledding:
And a few of us even explored the desert:
Spending the day at White Sands was a great way to spend our free day in New Mexico! A 10/10 experience. Would sled again.
Check out these videos of our sledding adventures:
NSF AST-1151462, the KINSC, and the Green Fund provide support for our student trips to observatories.
