Dark Skies

5th Annual Silver Falls State Park Star Party
August 15, 2009
Silver Falls State Park
Silverton, OR

Oregon's State Parks and Recreation Department, Salem's cosmic gurus of Night Sky 45 and the volunteer group, Friends of Silver Falls conducted a mini (9PM-12AM) crash course in astronomy last night. We all had a great time learning the star gazing basics, looking through different types of telescopes and feeding on cookies and hot cocoa. The biggest treats of the night...seeing a shooting star and dancing with the free glow in the dark bracelets.
