The open water is an ideal place to experience the brilliance of the Northern Michigan dark sky, and there is no more informative place to view them than from the deck of our schooner. On this two-hour sailing experience, you’ll be joined on your sail by a local astronomer who will orient you to the vastness of the night sky, point out constellations if visible, and share extensive knowledge of galaxies, stars, observational astronomy, and history.
Come with all of your questions and prepare to be amazed. Please also come prepared for cooler temperatures as an evening on the water can be quite a bit cooler than on land. This program is most appropriate for teenage and adult learners, however, you’re welcome to bring younger learners aboard.
