Scores Gather outside the Waterfront Event Center at Headlands to Watch Solar Eclipse
While the new Waterfront Event Center at Headlands Dark Sky Park is typically enjoyed at night, dozens of sun and moon gazers watched the solar eclipse on August 21 along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. Many people enjoyed the eclipse wearing a variety of telescopes, modified viewing devices and special glasses. It was also watched indoors, where a live-feed link from NASA was playing inside.
The afternoon was an excellent display of how this indoor/outdoor venue promotes tourism, quality of life, and discovery in Northern Michigan.
