How often do we lift our eyes to the skies for anything other than checking out the weather? When was the last time you stepped outside to view the night sky while it’s wearing its best twinkling outfit? Did you know there’s a lot to see up in the sky even during daylight?
Don’t miss your chance to learn about and view the sky. The Minnesota Astronomical Society is offering Public Star Party – Astronomy Day from 1-10 p.m. May 11 at Baylor Regional Park in Norwood Young America. The public event will be held regardless of weather conditions.
The Eagle Lake Observatory is situated within the park and is owned and operated by the astronomical society for the benefit of students, teachers, the public and members of the society. Its primary mission is education and public outreach. The observatory consists of the Onan Observatory, the Sylvia A. Casby Observatory and "Hotspot" Classroom in Baylor Regional Park.
