Friday, April 20 – Statewide Astronomy Night

FREE PARKING! Due to the “spring” weather we would like to provide all a “reprieve” and everyone gets free parking for this event!!

Celebrate SWAN at the Headlands Event Center from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. Come and explore the night sky with our telescopes and guidance from the Northern Michigan Astronomy Club and the Petoskey High School Astronomy Club. We will have an indoor video presentation at 8:15 p.m. about meteors and meteorites and then, provided the skies are clear, we will take in the night observing the sky under the Crescent Moon and Lyrid Meteor Shower. The observatory will be open and available for tours from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. for a $3 per person fee.
