An Evening Under the Stars

May 11, 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm

This event will be led by Astronomer Patrick Stonehouse, a world wide astronomer. The focus for the evening will be on the stars, planets and moon over Northern Michigan in early May in this special “dark sky” area.

This is an outdoor event so please dress accordingly and bring a camp chair, blanket, water bottle, and a small flashlight to aid in return to Discovery Center. A red lens or plastic insert is strongly encouraged to prevent night blindness

The Discovery Center’s 10″ diameter telescope will be in use and you are encouraged to bring your own!

The event will run from 9:00-10:30 pm and the Discovery Center will open at 7:00 pm if you wish to take a walk through.
