Special Public Star Party at ELO – Aurora Possible!

July 13, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm CDT

This Star Party will be CANCELLED if it is cloudy

The sun us currently quite active and there is a potential for a minor solar storm to graze the Earth on Thursday night.  That means that there is potential to see the Aurora Borealis from our area.

For for information, see this Star-Tribune article with information from MAS aurora chasers and Astro Bob King.

Join us at the MAS Eagle Lake Observatory for possible public viewing of the aurora.

This event is free of charge.

Annually, we also host all day events for the Spring and Fall Astronomy Day and the annual Camping with the Stars event.  Additionally, we may schedule special events throughout the year for a unique astronomical happenings such as an eclipses, planetary oppositions, conjunctions or comets.

*Other than our Camping with the Stars (CWTS) event, registration is not required to attend an event. CWTS is also the only event there is a fee to attend, as it is coordinated through the Baylor Park offices. Call the Baylor Park Office at 952-466-5255 for CWTS registration and camping information.
