Headlands Light’s Out Challenge
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 2023 AT 10 PM
Headlands’ Lights Out Challenge
Once again, Emmet County’s International Dark Sky Park at the Headlands challenges the communities around Northern Michigan to a friendly competition to see who can achieve greatest darkness as we get closer to the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower!
We’re challenging the local communities in a friendly area-wide competition to see who can get darkest in the 10 to 11pm. hour during the Perseid Meteor Shower, Wednesday, August 9th, 2023.
Please note that participation is voluntary, so help us get the word out!
The ‘Light’s Out Challenge’ is designed to help raise awareness about the effects of artificial light at night on nocturnal habitat, human health, and the way we use our energy resources.
Before the challenge starts, we will have a NOMAC presentation on meteor showers beginning at 8:30pm
