Fundraiser to help Albuquerque astronomy club replace stolen equipment


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The show went on for the Albuquerque Astronomical Society, even without $30,000 of its equipment.

Last week, thieves made off with telescopes, camera lenses and a portable planetarium.

Tuesday night, the Astronomical Society set up an old planetarium at Griegos Elementary School for a star party.

In the meantime, a fundraiser has been set up to help replace the equipment.
