Winter Star Party

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Activities: Astronomy, Drop-in Program, Outdoor activity
Location: Devil's Lake SP

Come see the glorious stars and planets out during the winter. The winter sky is home to more bright stars and easy to recognize constellations than any other time of year! We'll have a couple of telescopes set up for you to look through, a fire to keep you warm, and a marshmallow or two to roast. Bundle up and see some wonderful winter skies - weather permitting. Drop in anytime - the program will be happening just behind the Rock Elm Shelter near the North Shore Boat Launch.
