Two days, three dark sky parks – check out the video below as Eric Hultgren heads to Alpena to explore the area’s dark sky parks and view the Perseid Meteor Shower.

Whichever is first on your list – Rockport State Recreation Area (Michigan’s 100th State Park with over 4200 acres of preserve), Negwegon State Park (beautiful sandy beaches on the shores of crystal clear Lake Huron), or Thompson’s Harbor State Park (7.5 miles of undeveloped beauty) – it’s worth a trip to Alpena to experience the incredible sights both on the ground and in the sky.
