Starwatch Party

Thursday, October 18, 2018

Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Ramsey. Get to know the constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and some of their great stories behind them. We’ll also use large reflecting telescopes, including two giant reflector telescopes that are among the biggest mobile scopes in Minnesota for close up views of the moon, Saturn, star clusters, galaxies and other magic in our autumn skies. Mike will also bring a telescope-astrophotography system for really distant targets such as galaxies millions of light years away.

Mike Lynch is a meteorologist at WCCO Radio and has been hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy classes for over 47 years. He also writes a weekly stargazing column for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and is the author of the books; “Mike Lynch’s Minnesota Star Watch” and “Stars, a Month by Month Tour of the Constellations.” Both books will be available for purchase at a discount. Super cool glow in the dark star shirts will also be available for purchase. 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.

You're invited to bring your lawn chairs to make yourself comfy! Your universe is waiting! Make the Stars Your Old Friends.

Registration is required. Cost is $10 per participant.
