The Ford Amateur Astronomy Club has an established Island Lake Observing Location by permit, at the Spring Mill Pond area of the Island Lake Recreational Area in Brighton, Michigan located near the intersections of I-96 and US-23. All club members  have the  responsibility for opening, closing and locking the gate after the park’s 10:00pm closing time. Access for the lock should be available from one of our club members or club officers at the observing site during an observing session
All visiting guests must be accompanied by a Ford Amateur Astronomy Club member. Please send a note to us at our Club eMail to let us know that you would like to attend an observing session so that we can make arrangements for you. Always lock the gate behind you after 10:00pm whether entering or leaving the park. Don’t forget to place the key back in the lock box immediately after use. It is our only means of entering and exiting the park after hours.
