Experience the wonder of the night sky at Cherry Springs State Park through a laser-guided tour conducted by park staff. If conditions allow, we'll take a look through telescopes at some of the key features of the summer sky. 

Hear legends and myths surrounding several familiar and not so familiar constellations. Learn about park history, current use, and the importance of dark night skies.

Telescopes will be available from roughly 10 PM onward. Availability is subject to staff/volunteer availability, weather conditions, and crowd size limitations.
