Beaver Island Dark Sky astro-photography Event
What are They all looking at?
Photos below by Taffy Raphael, Becca Foli and Cynthia Johnson are all from an Astrophotography Workshop with Alex Mullins. Alex travelled from Delaware, Ohio to teach members of the Dark Sky Committee and Taffy Raphael how to take pictures in Space.
Tony Miller, Astronomer contributed greatly to the project, aiding with the purchase of telescope parts, finding Alex Mullins and helping the committee coordinate efforts to create Dark Sky Events this year.
Cynthia Johnson, Point of Contact for the committee presented Michigan State Legislation recently passed declaring July 2021 as Michigan’s Official Dark Sky Month. Johnson also said the Dark Sky Sanctuary Application is completed, thanks to some expert editing assistance from Anita Mauro, and the committee expects an announcement in October.
