Minnesota’s Second Annual Statewide Star Party: Celebrating our Dark Skies

Monday 11/09/2020
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

When you look up at the night sky, do you ever wonder how different it would look under really dark skies? What others across the state can see compared to what you see in your town? We are planning a week of virtual events, where night sky experts from across the state can participate and share their experiences and efforts to celebrate and protect our night sky. The events will be held November 9–14, 2020. Together, you and your community will join others across the state in observing stars, planets and other astronomical objects, considering what it means to have dark skies, and understanding how light pollution affects our view (and what we can do about that).

We’re seeking sites and partners from across the state, including community organizations, libraries, planetariums, astronomy clubs, state and local parks, and universities, to host public sky watching sessions throughout the weekend. Interested sites and partners are invited to fill out an application form! Selected sites will receive materials, including activity kits, logistical support, and training to help them prepare for hosting a successful event.
