    Astronomy Night

    Star Party on the Prairie - Friday, August 14, 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm

    We're having a star party, and you are invited! Come to the Regional Science Center adjacent to Buffalo River State Park and have the beautiful prairie sky interpreted for you. Learn how to find the constellations. See stars, planets, clusters, and nebulae through our telescopes. Bring your own binoculars or telescope, if you wish, even if you have questions on how to use it. It's a new moon night, so after twilight it will be plenty dark. Maybe we will see a stray meteor or two, because the Perseid Meteor Shower peaks around August 11. This event is FREE and open to the public from 8:30 to 10:30 pm. Come enjoy the prairie at night with the Fargo-Moorhead Astronomy Club and MSUM Physics & Astronomy.


    From Moorhead, go 14 miles east on U. S. Highway 10 and follow the signs to the Science Center and Buffalo River State Park.
