Weekend Programs at Cherry Springs State Park

Friday May 1, 2009
9:00 pm Night Skies Program-Discover the Moon’s Landscape
Get an up close glimpse of our nearest galactic neighbor. We’ll use a map to travel
across the lunar landscape and identify some of the features of the first quarter Moon.
We’ll look at some of the craters that are most distinctive along the line between light and
dark, and try to find some of the “craterlets” near them.

We will use the light of the
Moon to demonstrate its phases and also to understand how it affects human night vision.
Visitors should park their cars in the parking lot on the North side of the park, and follow
the lighted walkway to the meeting area.

If sky conditions are unfavorable for stargazing, an alternative program will be held in
the pavilion on the South side of the park.

8:15 pm Timberdoodle Trot
The American Woodcock, also known as the “Timberdoodle”, migrates through Cherry
Springs each year. See a mounted specimen and hear the mating call of the male
Woodcock in his singing grounds. We will take a stroll along the north side of the park
and try to spot a male performing his mating ritual. Meet the naturalist at the stargazing
amphitheatre on the north side of the park.

9:30 pm Night Skies Program-Telescopic Viewing of the Moon and Saturn
Join Cherry Springs staff and volunteers to celebrate the wonders of the night sky by
viewing some of the visible objects through telescopes set up on site. We’ll view the
Moon, Saturn, a few double stars, and perhaps some star clusters. Be sure to take home
some park information which will help you and your family become familiar with the
night skies of Cherry Springs.

Visitors should park their cars in the parking lot on the North side of the park, and follow
the lighted walkway to the meeting area.
If sky conditions are unfavorable for stargazing, an alternative program will be held in
the pavilion on the South side of the park.
