Black Forest Star Party
August 22, 2014 - August 24, 2014
The annual Black Forest Star Party is hosted by the Central Pennsylvania Observers in Cherry Springs State Park, Potter County, PA. As one of the darkest sites in Pennsylvania, at an altitude of 2300 ft above sea level, this is a prime spot for nighttime observing. The skies are so dark and clear that amateur astronomers have started organizing impromptu events in the park during observing season. Registration is only $30 for adults, and free for children under 18.
