A section of the 290-foot shipwreck Aurora is exposed on Dec. 11, 2012 in Grand Haven, Mich. due to low water levels in the Grand River. The Aurora is in the Grand River, which flows into Lake Michigan nearby. Michigan Shipwreck Research Associates members and officials with the Tri-Cities Historical Museum in Grand Haven have surveyed the area. Valerie Van Heest, director of MSRA and a maritime historian, says this offers a rare chance to see wrecks without having to scuba dive. The Great Lakes are shrinking because of drought and rising temperatures. (AP Photo/The Muskegon Chronicle, Ken Stevens) ALL LOCAL TV OUT; LOCAL TV INTERNET OUT
