Mike Lynch Minnesota Starwatch Party

Friday, August 4th 2017

from 9:30 to 11:00pm..(or later)

You’re invited to bring lawn chairs to make yourself comfy!

Make the stars your old friends and a lot of family fun as we watch the great celestial show over Glenwood and Pope County! 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 use an arsenal of huge telescopes for close up views of the moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and many other celestial treasures in our summer skies. Along with visual telescopes I’ll also have an astronomical camera-telescope system for extra special views of our more distant universe.

     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 45 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 at a discount. Really fun glow in the dark star shirts will also be available!

Your universe is waiting!
