Summer Solar Picnics

Sun shining on a clear blue sky

Ride your bike, bring your own picnic, and enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the St. Paul campus. Our astronomy educators will bring out specially outfitted telescopes so you can safely view the biggest yellow dwarf star around--our Sun! Staff will also highlight some of the exciting developments happening at our new museum and planetarium, under construction right next to the fields!
