End Date: 6/22/2014End Time: 11:00 PM
Event Description:
The Singing Sands Star Gaze at Indiana Dunes State Park on June 21 will give visitors the chance to view deep space through provided telescopes with astronomy experts.

The event is from 8:30 to 11 p.m. CDT at the Indiana Dunes State Park beach pavilion.

Calumet Astronomical Society members will bring telescopes for deep space viewing, and share their expertise and passion for star gazing.

The park’s interpretive naturalists will kick off the event with stories on American Indian sky lore. By 9:30 p.m. stars should begin to appear. With only a waning crescent moon setting before dark, good viewing of the night sky over Lake Michigan should be possible.

Constellation talks will highlight star formations visible over the dunes this time of year. In case of bad weather or cloud cover, the event will be canceled.

All activities are free to guests after paying the standard admission fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $10 per out-of-state vehicle.

The star gaze is sponsored by Indiana Dunes State Park Interpretive Services and Calumet Astronomical Society.

For more information, call (219) 926-1390.

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