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!
