Minnesota Starwatch Party
April 6 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Get to know the constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse and some of the great stories behind them. We’ll use large reflecting telescopes, including two giant 20-inch reflector scopes that are among the biggest mobile telescopes in Minnesota for close up views of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other wonders in our autumn skies. We will start the evening with a brief orientation, inside, followed by quality time outside, viewing the sky. Students under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You can pay per person or families of 3 or more get a discounted rate, click on rate box.
