Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center.
We’ll have giant telescopes aimed at Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, star clusters, galaxies, and more! Get to know constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and others. Great constellation mythological stories will also be featured.

Mike Lynch is a retired WCCO Radio meteorologist and has been hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy classes for 50 years. He also writes a weekly stargazing column for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and is the author of the book “Stars, a Month by Month Tour of the Constellations.” Even if it’s cloudy, you’ll learn a lot and have a great time!
