Event Details

Join Headlands International Dark Sky Park for their Lights Out Challenge on Sunday, August 4 from 10 PM to 11 PM.

Once again, Emmet County’s Headlands International Dark Sky Park challenges the communities around Northern Michigan to turn off their lights so that we can try to get the darkest sky ever recorded at the Headlands. This challenge will take place in the 10 to 11 pm hour on the night of the new moon when the sky is normally the darkest all month. Please note that participation is voluntary, so help get the word out! The ‘Light’s Out Challenge’ is designed to help raise awareness about the effects of artificial light at night on nocturnal habitat, human health, and the way we use our energy resources.
