Virtual winter stargazing event
The Winnebago County Conservation Board has moved their annual Winter Stargazing program indoors and online.
The virtual program will be held over Zoom, Friday, Jan. 15, beginning at 7 p.m., and last about 45 minutes. Using an online interactive star chart and various illustrations, Winnebago County Naturalist Lisa Ralls will discuss the brighter stars and constellations that are visible this time of year, as well as a very bright planet that you can now see. All participants will be emailed a star chart so they can follow along and, since this will be a live Zoom event, people will also be able to ask questions.
To register for this free program, email Lisa Ralls at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a star chart and the program’s Zoom link. You may also call 641-565-3390 for more information about the program.
