About the Annular


Join the American Astronomical Society, NASA, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, and others to view this special celestial event!  The site will be open in time for you to find a spot for your chairs and enjoy the spectical.


An annular eclipse is when the moon fully passes in front of the sun, but a fiery ring extends around its borders.  This hasn’t been visible in central New Mexico since 2012. Learn more about the science of eclipses and how Pueblo people and other communities thought about these events in the past, while learning how to safely view an annular eclipse.


Note: there is NO time during an annular eclipse when it is safe to look directly at the sun. Event participants will have access to filters for safe viewing and be able to create their own pinhole cameras to watch the whole event.

Rob Martinez, Deputy New Mexico State Historian presents A History of Witchcraft and Sorcery in New Mexico, October 29, 2023,  at the Martha Liebert Library in Bernalillo (new location)


New Mexico’s enduring beliefs in witchcraft and the ways of sorcerers during the Spanish Colonial and Mexican periods is the theme of this lecture. This presentation about brujeria and hechiceria, witchcraft and sorcery, examines the background and context of this history. The talk also touches on why, even in current times, such beliefs still persist in New Mexico.

Rob Martinez has had a life-long fascination with witchcraft and sorcery in New Mexico. While searching for a topic for his Master’s thesis in the mid-1990s, Rob Martinez, a graduate of the University of New Mexico, became aware of an Inquisition case from the 1760s in Abiquiu about an outbreak of sorcery in that community. The result of his research, that included reading a copy of the Inquisition folios in Mexico City, resulted in his thesis titled Fray Juan Jose Toledo and the Devil in Spanish New Mexico.
