Summer Solstice Star Cruise along the Straits with Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams

June 21, 2019 @ 9:15 pm - 10:45 pm


The Sun comes to its highest hour by day, and leaves a blazing trail of starlight in its wake after it sets on this longest day of the year.

Join Mary Stewart Adams on Shepler’s Ferry Friday, June 21st, as we cruise out under the Summer Triangle and the starry heroes of the summer sky, Hercules and Boötes, where they’re called to action by the warrior planet Mars, each of them seeking the pride of the season: the starry crown, Corona Borealis.

The Solstice moment occurs at 11:54 am on this day, followed by sunset at 9:32 pm, while we’re out on the water, where the Great Lakes meet.
