Universe in the Park

Time: 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Activities: Astronomy, Educational Programs, Night event, Outdoor activity
Location: Potawatomi SP

Universe in the Park is a popular outreach program of the UW-Madison Astronomy Department and is predicated on a very simple idea: the best environment in which to introduce the general public to astronomy is outside under dark skies. The session begins with a 20-30 minute talk and slide presentation covering a broad view of astronomy and recent astronomical news for the whole family. Following the presentation, a telescope is set up to view whatever astronomical objects are available. Question and answer period follows around the telescope. Meet at the Picnic Shelter.
