Cherry Springs State Park

Cherry Springs State Park is nearly as remote and wild today as it was two centuries ago. Night sky enthusiasts flock to the park for its dark skies which are famous for great views of the Milky Way, planets, and hard-to-see astronomical objects and phenomena. Named for the large stands of black cherry trees originally found in the area, the 82-acre state park is surrounded by the 262,000-acre Susquehannock State Forest.

In addition to online reading I have been doing this was my second milky way class. Enjoyed the class very much. Would highly recommend the class to anyone wanting to learn how to do the milky way.

It was amazing! You don't realize how many stars there are until you've been to a truly dark place. Here is a link to a photo I took - https://flic.kr/p/XSuvTh
