The Black Forest Star Party for 2014 is over. It was a rainy and  foggy few days. Occasionally glimpses of the stars would keep us hopeful. The programs were excellent and as usual, whenever a bunch of amateur astronomers get together there is a lot of sharing and exchange of ideas. Thanks to all the people that helped make our event successful despite the uncooperative weather!

The Central Pennsylvania Observers and the Black Forest Star Party were featured in the July 2014 issue of “State College” magazine.

The article by Jill Gleeson entitled “Starry Starry Night” is about the Cherry Springs State Park and in particular our club’s relationship with the park.
