Great Lakes Star Gaze

September 6 - September 9

Michigan's largest amateur star party. Location and dark skies are the main attraction of this star party. Gladwin, MI is a central location that provides excellent observing without traveling hours into Northern Michigan. Limiting magnitudes are estimated to be around 6.5 at zenith with some minor light domes from the cities of Mt. Pleasant and Midland, some 30 miles away. This is a star party for the astronomer who loves to observe and mingle with other astronomers. Some practical and interesting talks are scheduled to enhance your weekend experience. Those attending will have an opportunity to look through a 29 inch Dobsonian telescope. Our keynote speaker this year will be Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory.

This is an all day event that begins at 5:00 pm on the 6th and ends at 
12:00 pm on the 9th.

Early registration cost ranges from $40 – $70 after early registration cost ranges from $55 – $85.
