No light pollution, a space nerds dream! Cherry Springs is a small region in eastern PA that is composed of mostly parks and other wooded areas that is part of a dark site. I really enjoyed getting to see so many stars and the faint band of the milky way with such clarity. I also enjoyed getting to spend one weekend rather detached from technology, and instead of my usual email and phone checking, focused on taking hikes and cooking with my partner. It was a really wonderful get away before the semester started and I look forward to going back and doing some astrophotography next time.
