         Community-Hosted Outreach Events Scheduled for July and August:    

  • July  Weather permitting, our First-Quarter-Moon Public Star Party at Addison Oaks will be a two-tiered event again this month.   For folks who need to get to bed at a reasonable hour, the early evening program delivers eye-popping views of the Moon; observing continues into the dark hours to observe the comet and much more!   If you haven't signed up yet to receive invitations to our Star Parties, see the note above to be advised of location and time details each month.

  • July 13  Tonight, campers at Addison Oaks County Park will enjoy a special evening of summertime Lunar Observing at the camper's pavilion!

  • August 9  Troy's Stage Nature Center hosts the Oakland Astronomy Club for an indoor presentation followed by an old-fashioned meteor watch and summertime stargazing fest.   Register with the nature center HERE.

  • August 10  Yes! Addison Oaks is hosting another Meteor Party this year and we plan to share the night sky with a host of telescopes for your enjoyment!   Last year's party weather will be hard to beat, but we hear Addison Oaks is going all out with attractions this year!   Stay tuned for the official announcement from Oakland County Parks; we will update our web page with registration information as soon as the press release hits the streets!

  • August 17 at 5AM!!!  Are we mad? 5AM?   Yes to both!   You can watch Orion rising in the East, view the Orion Nebula, see the entire winter hexagon of bright stars surrounding Orion--all in the warmth of midsummer, pretty cool.   And there are more goodies: ogle the Andromeda Galaxy, observe a grand globular cluster and glorious open clusters!   Enjoy Saturn and observe the near conjunction of Mars and Jupiter.   Register with Oakland Township RecDesk for an early morning cornucopia of amazing sights!
