Mike Lynch MN Starwatch Party!!
New Ulm Public High School
You’re invited to bring lawn chairs to make yourself comfy!
Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over New Ulm. We’ll have giant telescopes aimed at Saturn, star clusters, galaxies, and other great celestial treasures. We’ll 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 distance celestial targets on a video screen. 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.” It 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’s the cloudy you’ll learn a lot, have a great time!!
