Eagle  Lake  Observatory  Public  Star  Party  Schedule

List of scheduled events at the MAS Eagle Lake Observatory.

Public Star Parties at the Eagle Lake Observatory are ''all weather'' events (unless otherwise noted), that is, they are held whether it is clear or cloudy, with the possible exception for hazardous weather conditions** (see below). Even if it is cloudy, someone will be there to show a video, give a presentation, give a tour of the observatory or answer any astronomy questions you may have.

Public Star Parties usually begin at 7 pm (unless otherwise noted) and last until 10 pm or possibly later.

There is no charge to attend a public star party, however, Baylor Park will charge $5 for daily parking. If you have a Carver County Park sticker, this fee is of course waived. To help us maintain the observatory, purchase door prizes and to pay the bills, donations to the MAS are also welcome.

**There may be a need to cancel due to hazardous weather conditions such as severe thunderstorm, tornados and/or snow storms. If any of these conditions are threatening, please check the MAS website homepage and/or the MAS info line at 952-467-2426, after 4:00 pm the day of the event for cancellation notices.

Additional information on the Eagle Lake Observatory, including map and directions, can be found at the Eagle Lake Observatory webpage. Information regarding weather at Eagle Lake can be found on the MAS home page or HERE.
