Dark skies ahead: MI parks celebrate International Dark Sky Week

Looking for a spectacular view of the stars? Try heading out to one of the Michigan state parks staying open late this weekend for International Dark Sky Week.

If you live in the city, you might not look up at the night sky that often.

And even if you do, there’s probably not much to see beyond the rows of lit windows on tall buildings.

But at certain state parks this weekend, you can trade in the hazy glow of streetlights for a sky full of stars during International Dark Sky Week.

Current State's Mark Bashore talks with Mary Stewart Adams, the program director at the Headlands International Dark Sky Park in Emmet County.
