Thank you so much for attending the 2014 Twelfth Annual Great Lakes Star Gaze Star Party! It's just a few volunteers that help put this together, and we couldn't do it without your help, kindness and generosity. New pictures are always being posted to the photos section of our website (even for previous years). If you have any pictures you would like to contribute, please upload them to our servers. The date for the 2015 thirteenth GLSG star party is Sep. 17-20, 2015. Registration will open mid-year 2015.
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.
The GLSG star party will be held at the River Valley RV Park in Gladwin, MI. Directions and more information about the star party can be found in the registration form.
