Thank you for yet another wonderful event this year! Please upload your pictures of this years star party. More pictures and updates coming soon. The 2013 Eleventh Annual Great Lakes Star Gaze Star Party will be held Sep. 5-8, 2013, at the River Valley RV Park in Gladwin, MI. Registration will open midyear 2014. Tentative dates for future GLSG star parties are Sep. 18-21, 2014 and Sep. 10-13, 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.
