Stargazing with NIU – In Person and Online

Join the NIU STEAM team for a dazzling evening of stargazing and viewing of the annual Perseid meteor shower – with outdoor in-person and live-streaming options. These brilliant meteors radiate from the Perseus constellation and appear throughout the sky. A panel of experts will introduce you to stellar science subjects, such as microwave telescopes and the latest space exploration missions. Then you’ll head out to observe the night sky with our personal telescopes or the naked eye.

Online webinar is free; In person experience is $15 per household; maximum of 4 people per household. Registration includes admission and a free NIU throw blanket; food sold separately.

For more details and registration, please see here. Note that there is a separate registration for the in-person and online events.
