In Estonia it is believed that the Northern Lights were magnificent horse drawn carriages carrying heavenly guests to a celestial wedding!

Weather permitting, we will do some live stargazing using binoculars and telescopes.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
