Northeast Michigan along the 45th parallel is one of the most amazing places to see the stars, and Besser Museum is celebrating Statewide Planetarium Night by pulling out their big telescopes and offering a planetarium show to teach the community about some of the best constellations to look for in the northern night sky. This event starts at 8 pm with a 40 minute planetarium presentation followed by time out in the Besser Museum's backyard where participants can use our high-quality telescopes to find different stars, planets, and constellations.
