Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over greater Wabasso. This night with the stars, constellations, planets, star clusters, nebulae, and more starts off with an indoor orientation followed by quality time outside under the heavens. Get to know the summer constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Sagittarius the Archer, and some of their great stories behind them. We’ll also use large reflecting telescopes, including two giant 20 inch reflectors that are among the biggest mobile telescopes in Minnesota for close up views of Saturn, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other wonders in our summer skies.
You’ll get a great handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, websites, a telescope-buying guide, and more!
Mike Lynch is a meteorologist at WCCO Radio and has hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy classes for over 40 years. He also writes a weekly stargazing column for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and is the author of the book; “Mike Lynch’s Minnesota Star Watch” that’ll be available for purchase at a discount. Even if it’s the cloudy you’ll learn a lot, have a great time and get a Mike Lynch “Cloud Check” for a future Minnesota Starwatch Class.
