2018 ALCON Special Event @ Eagle Lake Observatory

The Minnesota Astronomical Society is proud to announce we are hosting the 2018 Astronomical League Convention (ALCON 2018) from July 11th to July 14th, 2018.

Each evening we will be having a field trip to Eagle Lake Observatory in Baylor Regional Park to provide viewing through our state of the art telescopes, including an 8” TMB refractor. We’ll also have talks in our air conditioned, bug free HotSpot classroom. The park will also be the location of our Star-B-Q with live music on Friday night followed by viewing through our telescopes. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own telescopes and set them up around the observatory.
