Star Party at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
Visit Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore) on Saturday, September 10 at 9:00 p.m. for an evening under the stars. Recently, Good Morning America announced that the National Lakeshore was voted the "#1 Most Beautiful Place in America." Park rangers and members of the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society invite you to the Dune Climb to take a closer look at the night sky; a very important part of this beautiful place! Learn some new constellations, view Jupiter, and find the Milky Way with the help of experienced astronomers. The Grand Traverse Astronomical Society will bring several telescopes to take a closer look at one of the National Lakeshore's often forgotten resources - the night sky.
