Experience Summer’s Last New Moon on the Straits of Mackinac!
August 30, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:45 pm$29
Summer’s not over until you’ve cruised the Straits by the light of the stars!
Our August 30 evening sky cruise is scheduled in conjunction with the last New Moon of the season (though it’s not our last cruise of the year!), which means that after the Sun sets, we’ll get the best views of the evening planets, the thickest part of the Milky Way, and the brightest summer stars, undiminished by the Moon.
And though it’s Summer’s last New Moon, it also marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle, which is always beautifully undertaken by the light of the stars on the Straits.
“The sunbeam loved the Moonbeam
and followed he low and high…”
