Kopernik Observatory & Science Center
Winter Star Party
Celebrating Mikołaj Kopernik’s Birthday!
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! At 7 p.m. Fr. George Coyne SJ PhD, Director-Emeritus of the Vatican Observatory, will present a talk about Nicholas Copernicus (aka Mikolaj Kopernik) the namesake of the Kopernik Observatory.
At the end of his presentation, celebrate Mikołaj Kopernik’s birthday (February 19, 1473) with cake. If clear, throughout the evening you can brave the cold and see winter constellations, the Milky Way, the Orion Nebula, Jupiter and much more through Kopernik’s powerful telescopes.
