Star Gazing with Mike Lynch

Mike Lynch, a broadcast meteorologist at WCCO Radio has been teaching astronomy classes tothe public through community education classes and nature centers in Minnesota since 1973.  This class will provide a great introduction to stargazing!  Mike's story-telling and sense of humor also makes the class a lot of fun.  This class will begin with a 1/2-hour of indoor orientation/instruction about the nigh sky including maps and diagrams of constellations.  Then you will go outside to take in the celestial view.  Mike will give you a constellation tour and share the lore of Big Bear, Little Bear, Cassiopeia and more.  You will also have the opportunity to use large telescopes to take a closer look at the nigh sky.  Sign up as an individual, or as a family, for this unique class offered right here in Worthington.
