***Notes...   

If your group or organization would like our club to do a presentation or conduct an observing night for one of your events, see our "About Us" page.

The OAC Observing Site is located at:  Addison Oaks County Park, 1480 W. Romeo Road, just 20 minutes North of Rochester, MI.     Follow the Park signs to the parking lot of the Buhl Estate.    Your host from the Oakland Astronomy Club will meet you at the West end of the parking lot.

Observing nights are when the moonlight will not obscure dim objects. A senior club member has volunteered to be the key contact for the evening(s) listed.   Call the contact listed above for the weekend of interest!  The club member will determine, based on weather conditions, which one of the two nights will be best.  If the skies are clear - the club member has agreed to be at the site as long as one or more people have contacted them.
