Star Party at Bell Museum – Friday, March 15th

To infinity and beyond! Explore the sky with the Bell Museum at their free March Star Party taking place this Friday, March 15th from 8 – 9:30 pm. (Doors open at 7:45 pm and they do recommend getting there early.)

These telescope observing nights take place monthly during the U of M’s fall and spring semesters on the Bell’s rooftop observation deck. They are family-friendly but are recommended for ages 7+.

Each evening starts with an introduction to the Minnesota night sky in the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium, including helpful observing tips. After this brief introduction, the evening continues with telescope observation on the Ruth & John Huss Observation Deck. Bell Museum staff will guide you through observations of the same celestial objects that have inspired sky-gazers throughout history!

Events will take place rain or shine. In the case of poor weather, indoor activities will be planned in place of telescope observing. Arrive on time, the first part of the program takes place inside the Planetarium.

They do ask that you register in advance.
