Winter Constellations

Saturday, February 9
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The winter constellations are fabulous, arguably the best of the year! Get to know Orion the Hunter, Gemini the Twins, Taurus the Bull and many more as we make the stars our old friends by watching the great winter celestial show over the skies at Lake Elmo Park Reserve. Mike Lynch meteorologist for WCCO, will be bringing out large reflector telescopes that are among the biggest mobile telescopes in the mid-west. We’ll begin the program at the Nordic Center for a short presentation, and will spend the majority of time outside by the swim pond  getting close up views of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other celestial treasures. This is an outdoor event so please dress for the weather. FREE with vehicle permit.
