5th Annual Acadia Night Sky Festival
September 26-30, 2013

"If you look at a dark sky map of the United States, northern Maine jumps out as a star-filled oasis in the vast desert of light pollution that is the eastern United States. In fact, northern Maine is home to the largest area of dark sky east of the Mississippi River, with the darkest spot centered right over Piscataquis County. And standing as one gateway to this starlit paradise is Acadia National Park, an outpost of darkness at the end of the 1,700 miles of blinding artificial glare that is the Atlantic coastline."

"The Acadia Night Sky Festival is a community celebration to promote the protection and enjoyment of Downeast Acadia’s stellar night sky as a valuable natural resource through education, science, and the arts."
