2008 Great Lakes Star Gaze
September 25, 2008 @ 12:00 am - September 28, 2008 @ 12:00 am EDT
The Great Lakes Star Gaze was started by the Sunset Astronomical Society in 2003. Since the first year the Gaze has only grown bigger and better. The central location and dark skies are the main attractions. The Gladwin location provides excellent observing without having to travel 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 (approximately 30 miles away).
