Join members from several regional astronomical societies as they share their telescopes and introduce visitors to the night sky at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Kemil Beach parking lot. Stargazing programs will be offered throughout 2018 starting shortly after sunset on the second Saturday of each month.

While telescopes will be available, feel free to bring binoculars or your own telescope from home. Learn about the celestial objects of the season and the benefits of natural night darkness and dark-sky friendly lighting. Be sure to dress for cold weather as there are no indoor accommodations and the nearest restroom facility is a one-mile drive away. 

The Kemil Beach parking lot is located one mile north of U.S. Highway 12 on East State Park Road (300E). For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882.
