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.

It was great! The Park Rangers were the best! What type of telescopes were they using? Can you give details?

Unfortunately it was cloudy, then sprinkling and then it poured! Luckily we got to our cars just in time! Wish we had seen the stars!!

We thoroughly enjoyed the stargazing program. The interpreter was very knowledgeable and provided lots of great information. Viewing the planets and moon through the telescopes was great.

William Shuey left a positive review 8/10/2018

Very good. Unfortunately the sky was totally obscured by clouds (they were crystal clear the night before and the night after) but the rangers were still really helpful. They told us about the astronomical events and answered all our questions. On other nights, when we didn't have a tour reserved, they were just as helpful.

Ashley Wolk left a positive review 8/10/2018

Unfortunately, the weather was uncooperative and the clouds got in the way of a good show. Excited to go back on a clearer evening.

I am learning about this topic and the post has been very useful. I find good tips about splendor of the night sky at Cherry Springs State Park. Thanks for sharing. I also read some interesting photography content in precamera.com
