Universe in the Park

Universe in the Park is a free summer stargazing program that takes place in state and local parks throughout Minnesota. At each event, audiences will be taken on a guided telescope tour led by astronomers from the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics. The night begins at 8:45pm with a short outdoor talk on a space-related topic, ranging from astronomical history to modern breakthroughs in research. Afterwards, we’ll set up our portable telescopes, and attendees can get close-up views of targets like Saturn and Jupiter, the remnants of stellar explosions, or even distant galaxies. We hope you can join us as we explore science under the stars.
