Statewide Star Party

Friday, Nov. 8 through Monday, Nov. 11

Picture this: Thousands of Minnesotans at sites across the state observing the Moon and engaging in hands-on astronomy activities all at the same time. We invite you to participate in Minnesota’s first Statewide Star Party during the weekend of Friday, November 8 through Monday, November 11. Help us continue celebrating the Apollo 50th anniversary, the Moon, and beyond!

Check our website for a star party in your area—more than 30 events are planned—and for additional resources on skywatching, the moon, and more!

Thank you to Ruth and John Huss and the Hubbard Broadcasting Foundation for their generous support of Statewide Star Party: The Moon & Beyond, part of the Bell Museum’s Minnesota’s Astronomy Classroom initiative.
