This event is camping style star party held at River Valley RV Park near the town of Gladwin in central Michigan. This location and dark sky are the main attractions of this star party. Gladwin’s central location 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 mi. 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 and some activities are planned for the children.
