      EVENT DETAILS
      Kopernik's Winter Star Party

      A star party is a gathering of amateur astronomers as well as the general public 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. This year’s keynote speaker is Professor Nikole Lewis, from Cornell University’s Center for Astrophysics and Planetary Science and the Carl Sagan Institute. At 7 PM she will present a talk entitled Probing Worlds Beyond Our Solar System.

      At the end of Prof. Lewis’ presentation, celebrate Kopernik’s 546th birthday (February 19, 1473) with cake. If clear, throughout the evening you can see winter constellations, the Milky Way, the Orion Nebula, and much more through Kopernik’s powerful telescopes.
