Starsplitters Update June 2021

Starsplitters will begin monthly programs for the public on Saturday evenings at 8:30p.m. if the skies are clear:  July 31, August 28, Sept 25, and Oct 30. We will do them outside, and at this point, are not planning to share telescopes with the large groups. (Edit: We are now using telescopes.)We will talk about the sky, point out what is visible with our unaided eyes, and share our love for astronomy.

We are currently providing programs by request for small groups .

If you are visiting the park, you are welcome to come out to Starsplitter Hill to enjoy the night sky on clear nights. You can bring chairs or a blanket and spend some time looking up; if you are not registered as a camper, however, the park closes at 11 p.m.

If you live in the area and would like to be a member of the Starsplitters, let us know. Throughout the summer we will have a few activities—often we get there early to do a little upkeep and then spent some time under the sky together. We are open to helping you learn how to use our telescopes and learn more about astronomy and the night sky. If this interests you, contact us through Facebook Messenger or starsplitterswsp@gmail.com.

The Starsplitters of Wyalusing is a non-profit group of amateur astronomers who have partnered with schools, educators, interested citizens and benefactors to bring the fascinating science and wonders of astronomy to everyone. 

 

We are based at the Lawrence L. Huser Astronomy Center which is located within Wyalusing State Park in southwestern Wisconsin. 

 

Our dedicated group is committed to providing regular free public astronomy programs, arranged school viewings, and real telescope viewing experiences for anyone interested in the wonders of our universe.

 

Robert Frost, in his poem "The Star Splitter," extolled the value of having a telescope "in every town." 

 

We agree wholeheartedly, and we are committed to making our telescopes--and our knowledge--available to everyone who has "looked up" and wondered about all those stars.
