Bring your favorite picnic blanket and snacks for a delightful evening under shooting stars at the Headlands International Dark Sky Park. This evening marks the date of the rare celestial phenomena known as the grand sextile, and though it won't be visible to us, it offers good opportunity for storytelling, poetry and stargazing. Also at this time, the Delta Aquarid Meteor Shower peaks. The radiant of this shower is near the star Scheat in the constellation Aquarius, a star which name means "a wish."
Telescopes are provided.
Mackinaw City, on I-75, is at the very tip of Michigan's mitt, the last stop before crossing the Mackinac Bridge.
