CHERRY SPRINGS STATE PARK OFFERS STARGAZING PROGRAM ON OCT. 11 & 12

COUDERSPORT— A free stargazing program will be on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 11 and 12 at Cherry Springs State Park at 4639 Cherry Springs Road, Coudersport, Pa. 16915. The park is 12 miles from Route 6 in Galeton via West Branch Road and 15 miles from Coudersport via Route 44.

Join park staff in the Night Sky Viewing Area for the Full Moon and Planet Watch from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 11 and 12. Take a journey to the moon to explore some of its fascinating features from highlands to volcanic plains and discover where lunar landings took place. Afterwards, take an up close look at planets and other celestial objects through park telescopes. Preregistration is required to attend this free program.

The Full Moon and Planet Watch will be cancelled if it rains or thunders.

Anyone may observe the night sky at Cherry Springs on his or her own without attending a stargazing program. All visitors should arrive before dark. Search for the Clear Sky Chart online for 48-hour forecasts about viewing conditions.

Cherry Springs State Park is one of the top dark sky destinations in the world. It was the first to be designated a Dark Sky Park in the eastern United States. Night sky enthusiasts flock to the park to see its dark skies, which are famous for great views of the Milky Way, planets, hard-to-see astronomical objects and phenomena. Because it is remote, the park's nighttime conditions for stargazing remain the same as before the introduction of electric lighting in the late 19th century. In 2008, the International Dark Sky Association named Cherry Springs a Gold Level Dark Sky Park, the highest designation that can be given to a dark sky site.
