ECRL Legacy Programming Presents the Minnesota Starwatch Party

Join us for a special Legacy program as meteorologist, Mike Lynch, presents his Minnesota Starwatch Program.  This two hour program is recommended for ages 6 and up.  The program will include an indoor presentation followed by quality time outside under the heavens, weather permitting.

Get to know the constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, Aquila the Eagle and many more. Mike will bring a fleet of telescopes, including two of the biggest mobile telescopes in Minnesota for close up views of planets, star clusters, nebulae, and other wonders in late summer and early autumn skies. He’ll also bring a video-telescope system for ultra-deep view of galaxies and more!  The program is free and open to the public.telescope_arsonal
