We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, September 27, 2019.
Make the stars your old friends and watch the great celestial show in the skies over Blaine. Get to know the constellations like the Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and some of the great stories behind them. Use large reflecting telescopes that are among the biggest mobile scopes in Minnesota for close up views of Saturn, Jupiter, star clusters, galaxies, and other magic in the early autumn skies. Mike will also bring a telescope-astrophotography system to see 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 48 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." The book 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 is cloudy you will learn a lot, have a great time and get a Mike Lynch "Cloud Check" for a future Minnesota Starwatch Class.
