Quote:The weather was great for this year's star party and flies were not a problem. The dark skies of Cherry Springs have been degraded in recent years due to light from gas drilling in Potter and neighboring counties. Drilling has been put on hiatus in Potter County due to the drop in the price of natural gas and the skies have improved a bit as a result.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBpP3uxJ3OY&list=UUVfWtdlxmG4Wev9DZsM1SoQ&...

Quote:I want to go, but June has very late sunsets and early sunrises.
Quote:That place can get really cold there. I think it hit 45F one of the nights this last year even in June.

Quote:For some reason, their website seems to be a thing of the past for registration and any information about the star party. What a shame. Not all of us are Facebook Fans.
