Fall Equinox Starwatch Party

Monday, September 21, 2020

Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Ramsey. Get to know the constellations like Bootes, Cancer, Crater, Hydra, Leo and Virgo and some of the great stories behind them. We’ll also use large reflecting telescopes, including two giant reflector telescopes that are among the biggest mobile scopes in Minnesota for close up views of the moon, Saturn, star clusters, galaxies and other magic in our Fall skies. Mike will also bring a telescope-astrophotography system for 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. Registration is required, participation is limited to 30 people. Fee is $10 per person.
