Starsplitters Update April 2021

Starsplitters is in the process of submitting our 2021 covid plan to the state. Once it is approved, we will be able to do programs by request for groups of 10 and under -- http://www.starsplitters.org/2011/12/programs-by-request.html. We are not scheduling any public park programs at this time.

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, you will need to know that 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 business meetings and activities—right now we need to clean the telescopes and get them ready for the summer—and if the weather is clear afterwards, we hope to be able to spend a little 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.
