This is a group for anyone interested in astronomy. We will meet at various public places in the Twin Cities to star gaze, promote awareness, and share knowledge. Bring your telescopes, though owning a telescope isn't necessary. But having enthusiasm for space is. These events generally won't be at typical "dark sky sites" -- though of course some will -- but instead at places chosen to share our scopes with the public. Looking forward to exploring the night sky with everybody.
