We Welcome you to come see for yourself

Just outside of Coudersport, Pennsylvania you’ll find star-spangled Cherry
Springs State Park, consistently rated one of the 7 best places on the planet for stargazing. On a clear night, up to 30,000 stars fill the sky, and lucky guests may also glimpse Asteroids, Venus – the evening star, Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights), Omega Nebula, Zodiacal Light, Meteor Showers, Lunar Viewing and the Milky Way, and other celestial bodies. Cherry Springs calls to everyone from amateur stargazers to professional astronomy students, as well as those who have heard the stories of the “old-time sky” (before the age of light pollution) from their grandparents.
