Join us as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Faribault. We start off with an indoor orientation followed by quality time outside under the heavens. Get to know the constellations like The Big Bear, Orion the Hunter, Leo the Lion, and some of their great stories behind them. We’ll also use large reflecting telescopes, including two giant 20-inch-wide reflector telescopes for close up views of planets, the moon, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and other wonders in our winter skies. Weather permitting, we’ll also use a new astronomical camera-telescope system for extra special views of our more distant universe. You’ll also get a great big handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, apps, websites, a telescope-buying guide, and more!

Mike Lynch has been a meteorologist and broadcaster at WCCO Radio for near nearly 40 years and has been hosting star watching and astronomy programs for well over 45 years.
