In case of cloudy skies Mike will do an extended entertaining and education indoor astronomy program and barring rain or snow you’ll still go outside and do some “land-gazing” with the giant telescopes. You’ll also receive a “cloud check” that permits you to come to any future Mike Lynch Starwatch program, not only for Webster schools but anywhere else in Minnesota or Wisconsin where it’s offered.
Your universe is waiting!
Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show available overhead. 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, Taurus the Bull, Gemini the Twins, and some of their 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 planets, star clusters, nebulae, and other wonders in our fall skies. I also bring a video- telescope system for ultra deep view of galaxies and more!
You’ll also get a great handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charts, websites, apps, a telescope-buying guide, and more!
