Bring lawn chairs to make yourself comfy! Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show over St. Michael and Albertville. We start with an indoor orientation followed by time outside. Get to know the constellations like the Great Bear, Leo the Lion, Cassiopeia, and some of the great stories behind them. I’ll bring a fleet of telescopes, including two of the biggest mobile telescopes in Minnesota for close up views of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other wonders in our spring skies. Handouts, star maps and charts, websites, and a telescope-buying guide are included!Mike Lynch is a meteorologist at WCCO Radio and has been hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy classes for over 40 years. He writes a weekly stargazing column for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and is the author of the book: “Mike Lynch’s Minnesota Star Watch” available for purchase at a discount at class. Even if it’s cloudy you’ll learn a lot and have a great time and get a Mike Lynch “Cloud Check” for a future Minnesota Starwatch Class.
