HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- The Shoreline Amateur Astronomical Association will hold a viewing of the skies on Saturday at Curtis center Park at 8th Street and College Avenue.  President of the Association Peter Burkey, is hoping for clear skies.  During the day, you can see things like sunspots and at night, if it's clear, you could see many interesting things.  Burkey says you should be able to see Venus and there’s the possibility of viewing a double star.  Several telescopes will be set up, pointed at different parts of the sky so people can get a good look at the skies.  The event takes place on Saturday from 2 until 11 P.M.
