MN: Check out your local university

Home/Astronomy, Events, Science & Nature/MN: Check out your local university

Are you sitting around, bored, wondering what to do? Have you checked with your local university? Here in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Astrophysics they have a public viewing night.

Friday nights, starting September 13, from 8:00-9:30 pm you get a short presentation (When I went they discussed citizen science opportunities) and then up to the dome and a view of the stars (It was the first time I’d ever seen the moon up close).

Topic schedule is here.

Definitely a family friendly (and/or first date) outing.

the lovely image of the moon comes from stem.nasa.gov
