Thunder Moon Cruise Where Great Lakes Meet
July 26, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm$27
July skies over the Straits of Mackinac will be dramatic with the red planet Mars sweeping in close to oppose the Sun, just as the Thunder Moon plunges into the shadow of a Total Eclipse. Though the eclipse won’t be visible during our cruise, the mood will be terrific, since we have timed this evening’s event so we are cruising the Straits toward sunset in the west (at 9:16 pm) with nearly Full Moon over Lake Huron behind, to the east. Or as Tennyson would say: “Move eastward happy earth, and leave yon orange sunset waning slow, from fringes of the faded eve, o happy planet, eastward go!” Night sky narration by Mary Stewart Adams, and tickets at Shepler’s Ferry Service.
