Join us at the library for an evening of astronomy and stargazing with meteorologist Mike Lynch. The night will begin at 7:45 PM with an indoor orientation of the night sky with maps and constellation diagrams provided. Then we will go outside onto the terrace and take in the big celestial show overhead. Enjoy a constellation tour and share some of the lore of Big Bear, Little Bear, Cassiopeia, and many more. You’ll also use large telescopes to take a closer view of the beauty in the night sky. Your universe is waiting!
Mike Lynch, a broadcast meteorologist at WCCO Radio has been teaching astronomy classes to the general public through community education and nature centers in Minnesota and western Wisconsin since 1973. It’s a great introduction to the world of stargazing and you will learn a lot! Mike’s easy-going manner and sense of humor also makes the class a lot of fun.
Please note: Event will occur rain or shine. Entrances to the library will lock promptly at 8:00 PM as the library closes for regular use. Please arrive by 7:45 PM to enjoy this program.
