MAY 27-29: CHERRY SPRINGS STATE PARK BLITZ
 
If you have the time and are willing to drive to Galeton, then to Carter Camp and on up over the hill via Rte. 44N; or take the Galeton -West Street –West Branch Road, either scenic route will have you coming out at Lyman Run Road which will take you to Cherry Springs State Park this coming holiday weekend. Weather permitting, this will be a great time to see the night sky at its best. You’ll never know just how dark the skies can be until you’ve stepped out at night to see the sky at one of the darkest places in the United States! To help you make the most of your evening visit, consider attending one of these special programs on site. Click here for more information. Cherry Springs State Park

FRIDAY:
6 PM: Have youngsters with you who are ready to tackle the night sky with a telescope of their own? Or try one of the parks if you have always wanted to buy one but just were not sure how to go about it? This two hour program will help you and your children learn more about seeing the sky through a telescope lens. Preregistration is required by calling Project Office: (814)435-5010
 
9:30 PM: Stick around for an hour of great night sky viewing (clouds permitting). This guided tour of the night sky will locate Mars, the moons of Jupiter & several of the Zodiac signs and other constellations. 
 
SATURDAY
7 PM: Settle in for a 45-minute child learning level program on ‘Beneficial Bats’ and learn about this night sky winged mammal delight.
 
SUNDAY
6 PM: This interpretive hike and tribute to veterans around the world starts out at the trail head (by restrooms) and will weave in and out of the forest for an hour and a half. Don’t forget to dress appropriately and bring your water bottle, camera and binoculars.
 
REMINDER: If it rains or is cloudy, stargazing and other programs may be cancelled and since there is LITTLE to NO cell signal on the way there, please check the Cherry Springs State Park Clear Sky Chart website for cloud cover and viewing conditions before leaving or call (814) 435-1037.
