StarWatch

September 4 @ 8:30 PM - 10:30 PM CDT

Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Lake Elmo Park Reserve. Take a look at Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. Mars will be the closest it will be to Earth until 2035! Get to know constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and some of the great stories behind them. Giant video telescopes will be aimed to view star clusters, galaxies, and more. There will also be safe viewing with other telescopes aimed at Jupiter and Saturn. Free wrapped safety glasses will be provided for individuals, couples, or families. Participants also get a great big handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, apps, websites, a telescope-buying guide, and more! REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, $5 / adult and $2 / children 12 and under.
