Star-gazing event July 30 at Hemlock Crossing

Ottawa County Parks is partnering with the Shoreline Amateur Astronomical Association of Holland to offer year-round astronomy programs for both beginning and experienced stargazers. The next program is "Tour the Night Sky,' scheduled for Saturday, July 30, at Hemlock Crossing County Park. It will begin at 9 p.m.
Jul 25, 2011


Members of SAAA will bring their telescopes and instruct participants on how to explore and observe the summer night sky — including constellations, hunting down deep-sky objects, and viewing everything from planets and stars to countless nebulae, clusters, comets, satellites and many other fascinating objects. 

Bring a lawn chair, insect repellent and binoculars (if you have them). If you own a telescope, please bring it along.

There is no fee and advanced registration is not required. This program is great for adults and families with older children. The program will be canceled if the sky is cloudy.

For more information, call 616-786-4847.
