Location and dark skies are the main attractions of this star party which is located in central Michigan. Gladwin’s central 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, about 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 children. The star party is located at the River Valley RV Park.
