Pickett State Park Dark Sky Celebration Weekend 2018 (Sept 7-9)
Unfortunately we were mostly clouded out for the star party. From the sounds of it some of the other big star parties going on concurrently were also clouded out. It just wasn’t a good weather weekend for a large portion of the eastern US. Regardless of the clouds, the rangers at Pickett put together some good food and speakers for the event to keep it entertaining. I stayed for only one night and snapped a few pics of the hazy skies with the Milky Way trying to peak through.
Cherry Springs was a bust as well. Friday night we probably had about 45 minutes without the clouds. But it was still nice to chat with everyone.
