Mike Lynch Wisconsin Starwatch Party
Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over Hudson. We’ll have giant telescopes aimed at Saturn, star clusters, galaxies, and other great celestial treasures. We’ll also check out constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and some of their great stories behind them. Along with visual telescopes there will be a telescope-astronomical camera system to really see distant celestial targets on a video screen. Mike Lynch is a meteorologist at WCCO Radio and has been hosting star watch parties and teaching astronomy classes for over 48 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.” Super cool glow in the dark star shirts will be available for purchase. Even if it’s cloudy, you’ll learn a lot and have a great time! Please indicate the number of family members attending as seating is limited.
Mike has had the privilege of being a meteorologist and personality at WCCO Radio in Minneapolis since 1980, and has been putting on astronomy programs with his arsenal of telescopes since the early 70's. Even though he's been at this for over 45 years, he still has an incredible passion and drive to create the best experience for everyone who attends. He makes the experience entertaining, informative, and family friendly. He wants to get people excited about a lifelong hobby!
