Join us for a night of starwatching with WCCO Radio's Mike Lynch!
We will start our night with Mike’s Minnesota Starwtach orientation at twilight. Once we learn the basics, we will go outside to see the constellations and hear some great stories. Using some of the largest telescopes in Minnesota, we will get up close views of planets, the moon, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other wonders. Mike will even teach the basics of celestial photography.
All participants will receive a booklet of user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, websites, a telescope buying guide and more.
Be ready to explore the stars and spend the evening outside!
Registration is required—suggested donation of $10 per participant.
In case of clouds or rain, we will do a “virtual stargazing” program and participants will receive a “cloud check” to visit a future program (at any location) for free.
