Love the stars? In need of a cosmic perspective on life? Your local university or planetarium will probably be celebrating Astronomy Day today, a yearly event to help anyone get better acquainted with the sky.
Our local club, the Arrowhead Astronomical Society, along with the University of Minnesota-Duluth Astronomy Club, will be sharing their passion for the sky at the Marshall W. Alworth planetarium on the UMD campus (Duluth, Minn.) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.
Come join us for a safe look at the sun and sunspots through several different telescopes. plus we’ll have lots of displays and talks on astro topics throughout the day. Admission is $5 a person or $15 per family. Food will also be available.
