          Community-Hosted Outreach Events Scheduled for June and July:  

  • June 10, 8-10pm  Once again, the Oakland Astronomy Club joins MSU Tollgate Farm at their popular annual program "Starry Night on the Farm".

  • June 18, 1-2:30pm  Campers, come celebrate the Summer Solstice at Addison Oaks County Park! Learn the story of the solstice and, weather permitting, view the Sun safely (and close-up) through specialized solar telescopes.

  • June 25, 1-2:30pm  Join the Oakland astronomy club at Red Oaks County Park this Saturday to celebrate the Summer Solstice and learn the "reason for the seasons".   Weather permitting, we will also view the Sun safely (and close-up) through specialized solar telescopes.   Registration with Oakland County Parks is required.   (Call weekdays to register 248-858-0916.)

  • July 8, 9-11pm  Tonight is the beginning of our summer evening programming for campers at Addison Oaks.   Meet us at the Camper's Pavilion for a brief overview of what is in the sky tonight; then, weather permitting, we will enjoy close-up telescopic views of the first quarter Moon along with awe-inspiring views of some of Summer's deep sky treasures!

  • July 11, 7-7:45pm  Join us at Auburn Hills Public Library this evening to learn how to find Summer's bright stars and constellations. You'll be amazed at how easy it can be!   The program content will be rewarding for all ages, adults as well as families with children.   We'll have sky maps, resource suggestions, NASA handouts including packets with pocket-size image/information cards with all of our solar system's celestial objects! (Pre-registration with the library is not required for this event.)
