Winter Star Party at Kopernik

February 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A star party is a gathering of amateur astronomers for the purpose of observing the sky. Kopernik’s annual Winter Star Party tradition continues this year and you are invited! Family-friendly activities and observing will begin at 6 pm when the doors open. At 7 pm, celebrate Kopernik’s 546th birthday (February 19, 1473) with cake and following the celebration, we will have a speaker present on an exciting astronomical topic. Once we confirm the speaker’s presentation, more information on the Winter Star Party will be made available on our Website. If clear, throughout the evening you can see winter constellations, the Milky Way, the Orion Nebula, much more through Kopernik’s powerful telescopes.
