Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over the Stillwater Ice Castle. Get to know the constellations like The Big Bear, Gemini the Twins, Leo the Lion, and some of the great stories behind them from WCCO Radio meteorologist Mike Lynch. Mike has been hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy classes for over 40 years.
We’ll also use two large telescopes that are among the biggest mobile telescopes in Minnesota for close up views of the planet Jupiter, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other wonders in our early winter skies.You’ll also get a great handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, websites, a telescope buying guide, and more!
Dress warm and bring lawn chairs to make yourself comfortable!
