Learn about and watch the great celestial show in the skies over Minnetonka. Get to know the constellations and use large telescopes for close up views of our universe! Weather permitting we’ll also use an astronomical camera-telescope system for extraordinary views of our more distant universe. This event will take place outdoors, please dress for the weather. Masks will be required, and safe-distancing guidelines will be followed. Bring your lawn chair to more comfortably enjoy the experience. You’ll receive a handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, apps, websites, a telescope-buying guide, and more! 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,” that’ll be available for purchase. Super cool glow in the dark star shirts will also be available along with some of Mike Lynch’s astrophotography. Even if it’s cloudy you’ll learn a lot, have a great time!
