Event Description:
An astronomy event at Indiana Dunes State Park, June 15, offers the public the chance to gaze into deep space and learn about constellations.

The Singing Sands Star Show runs from 8:30 to 11 p.m. CDT at the park’s beach pavilion. Star gazing will begin around 9:30 p.m. With only a partially lit moon, the night should offer good viewing of the sky over Lake Michigan. Calumet Astronomical Society members will share their telescopes with the public.

The event will kick off with stories on American Indian sky lore. Constellation talks will highlight the star formations visible over the dunes this time of year.

In case of inclement weather, an alternate space talk will be offered in the nature center at 8:30 p.m.

All activities are free after the standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $10 per out-of-state vehicle.

The event is sponsored by the Calumet Astronomical Society and the Friends of Indiana Dunes group. For more information, call (219) 926-1390.

Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
