Believe it or not, only 10 percent of Americans have seen a true dark sky. Call it an unfortunate side effect of urban life or a necessary casualty of industrialization. Either way, the city lights have overtaken our view of the stars in many places in the U.S. But not here at Cherry Springs State Park near Coudersport, PA.
Our grandparents remember what dark skies looked like—and at Cherry Springs State Park, you can experience the sky as they did. One of the top dark sky destinations in the world (and the “Gold Level Dark Sky Park” designation from the International Dark Sky Association to prove it), Cherry Springs presents skies for studying, gazing, or gaining a better understanding of our place in the universe.
