Beaver Island, Michigan
Bill Markey gave a star-studded Dark Sky presentation at the Beaver Island Community Center in conjunction with the Warblers on the Water Festival this year.
About 40 star-gazers attended the...
...slide show filled with Frank Solle night sky photography and heard news about the importance of establishing dark sky spaces on our island and a possible, official dark sky designation.
Markey found light levels on the island to be well within the range needed for official dark sky areas and is working with other agencies to obtain the necessary documentation and funding.
