Receive a new telescope as a gift or new to using telescopes? In the first Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve Star Party of 2023, experienced Minnesota Astronomical Society members will walk you through the basics of telescope use and help you learn more about your telescope and how to use it. If the skies are clear, practice what you learned using your telescope. In addition, a number of telescopes will be available for night sky viewing after the program, weather dependent. NOTE: You do not need a telescope to attend.
Star Parties are scheduled on Friday nights, with a backup date of Saturday, if the weather is better. Please check the Minnesota Astronomical Society Cedar Creek webpage to stay up to date on the start time and if the Star Party is occurring on Friday, March 24, or Saturday, March 25. You do not need to register for this event.
