Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Saint Paul. We’ll have giant telescopes aimed at the moon, Saturn, star clusters, galaxies, and other great celestial treasures. We’ll also check out constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and some of their great stories behind them. Along with visual telescopes we’ll have a telescope- astronomical camera system to really see distant celestial targets on a video screen.

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 and have a great time!

This FREE, family-friendly event is cosponsored by Saint Paul Public Library and Metro State University. Dress for the weather please! Feel free to bring lawn chairs to make yourself comfy!
