Join members from the Chicago Astronomical Society, Michiana Astronomical Society, and Calumet Astronomical Society with their telescopes as they introduce the night skies to visitors at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's Kemil Beach parking lot. The experts will train their massive telescopes on interesting features and discuss the incredible night sky. Please dress for the weather as there is no indoor space at the Kemil beach parking lot. It may be helpful to bring a pair of binoculars from home. Please note that the national lakeshore is in the Central Time Zone.
 
We are happy to announce that monthly stargazing at the Kemil Beach parking lot will continue throughout 2017 on the third Saturday of each month.
 
The Kemil Beach parking lot is located one mile north of U.S. Highway 12 on East State Park Road (300E).
