On one of the coldest nights of the year, I ventured out into the country and sat outside to observe the night sky.
It was a fascinating experience taking in the celestial display. Brilliant enough to the naked eye, I got to look at it through a high-powered telescope. This was made possible by several members of the Minnesota Astronomical Society, who met me at the Onan Observatory near Norwood-Young America on the western edge of the metro area for an evening of star gazing.
The story of my stellar adventure is the subject of my outdoors column that will appear this week in The Catholic Spirit. Don’t miss it!
