Dark Sky Caravan 2021
The Dark Sky Caravan is hitting the road again and celebrating Minnesota’s dark skies through virtual events and star parties! Join Planetarium staff and local partners on Facebook Live Aug 9-10 to learn about the efforts to preserve our dark skies and how you can enjoy them for yourself (Facebook event).
Then, come out to one of our star parties on Aug 11-14 from 8:00p-10:00p for telescope viewing and live star shows (weather permitting). We will be at different locations every night:

- In addition to the star party, guests can enjoy a short (15 min) planetarium show. Shows will run every 20 minutes starting at 8p. Show sizes are limited to 13 people and all guests must wear a mask inside the planetarium.
