As evening approaches the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, visitors are provided with an extraordinary opportunity to examine the night sky with a spectacular and an unhindered view! See planets, galaxies, star clusters and other deep space objects. Park rangers and members of the Grand Travere Astronomical Society will be on hand to help you unravel some of the myseries of the night sky. Visitors are encouraged to bring a red filtered flashilight, binoculars, beach chairs, blankets and bug spray.
The event will be cancelled for inclement weather or if the stars are not visible due to cloud cover. Call 231-326-4700 for updates!
Today, enjoy an afternoon of solar viewing and, after dark, observe summer constellations and possibly a few bright Perseid meteors! This evening will be the day before the peak of the annual Perseid meteor show!
