On a crisp clear night in Michigan, the night sky offers spectacular ever-changing objects to be viewed. Constellations, stars, planets, the moon and so much more. In a time where the days blend together, a night spent under the stars is a great way to make memories and make the most of the spare time some of us might have more of. The best part is that not only is the event free but viewing the night sky will never cost a dime.

Some tools you can invest in if night sky gazing becomes your new go-to hobby are binoculars, a sky map, or a beginner's telescope to enhance objects that may otherwise appear invisible to the naked eye.
