On August 21,
You are invited to a Star Gazing Open House Monday, August 21 at 12:00pm (noon) to view the solar eclipse at their observatory. There is no charge. They will be viewing the night sky with telescopes. As you wait for night, you might get a tour of the facility or a presentation. They'll introduce you to amateur astronomy and have plenty of handouts on how to get started. If an open house is cloudy, it’s cancelled. If weather conditions are questionable, call (231) 777-1013 to find out the status of a particular event. Come equipped! Flashlights can be helpful for finding your way around in the dark, but should be kept directed toward the ground so as not to interfere with observing activities. Insect repellent and warm clothing (particularly for feet, head and hands) are strongly encouraged during appropriate seasons. While the clubhouse has heat and A/C, the rest of the facility is open to the night air. If you wish to visit the facility at another date and time, wish to bring a group to an open house or wish to schedule a special open house, please contact them via email at email@example.com before the next regular meeting so they can schedule the manpower needed.
