Night Sky/Northern Lights Photography Workshop

Saturday, December 4 - 7:30 pm - 9:30pm

The purpose of this workshop is to educate people on how to capture the beauty of the northern lights and the night sky on camera. Topics being covered include equipment needed, camera settings, and the best locations for viewing. This workshop will start out with a brief powerpoint presentation (in the conference room), and then we will go outside for hands-on experience — taking pictures of the night time sky (hopefully northern lights) around the Lodge property - weather depending.

Stargazing on the Keweenaw is a year round activity. The lack of light pollution allows for clear views of the Milky Way, the moon and many of the planets in our solar system. The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge offers the free use of a telescope through our stargazer program. If you are staying at the Lodge you can check out a telescope for no additional charge. Just stop in the OAC or call (906) 289-4403 to reserve. To learn more about stargazing at the Lodge please check our website under Outdoor Activities: https://keweenawmountainlodge.com/activities/stargazing/
