Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show over Lake Elmo Park Reserve. Following a short orientation, you’ll enjoy quality time outside under the heavens getting to know the constellations like The Big Bear, Orion the Hunter, Gemini the Twins, and some of their great stories behind them. We’ll also use large telescopes for close-up views of the moon, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, and other wonders in the winter sky.
Mike Lynch is a retired meteorologist from WCCO Radio and has been hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy for nearly 50 years. He also writes a weekly stargazing column for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and is the author of the book “Stars, a Month by Month Tour of the Constellations". Even if it’s cloudy you’ll learn a lot, have a great time! Cost is $5 per person and reservations are required.
