Indiana Dunes State Park will host the Singing Sands Star Show on Saturday, June 23, at the beach pavilion.
Activities begin at 8:30 p.m. (CDT), when Astronomical Society members will bring telescopes for deep space viewing and share their expertise and passion for star gazing. At the same time, the park’s interpretive naturalists will share stories on Native American sky lore.
By 9:30 p.m., stars will begin to appear. The near new moon may offer unparalleled viewing of the night sky over Lake Michigan. Constellation talks will highlight the many star formations that can be viewed over the dunes this time of year.
The event ends at 11 p.m.
All activities are free after the standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $10 per out-of-state vehicle.
The star gaze is co-sponsored by the Calumet Astronomical Society. For more information, call (219) 926-1390.
