  • Perfect location for night "dark sky" star gazing where at this location there are no electric lights to disturb sky viewing. The facility does have red lights which allow the eyes to not be affected watching the stars and planets. And even great for a day trip to see the facility and adjacent park. Make sure to stand on the "sun dial" and check out the structure that indicates the solstices through the year as the sun sets and rises. One suggestion is to have available information for visitors on the astronomical features at the park and how to use them and hours of operation at night.
  • First time visiting this place last night, great little place down in Hocking Hills right off of 664. The staff did an entertaining presentation and a lot of volunteer astronomers had their gear setup so you could see different things. Great views of Jupiter and Saturn and of course excellent views of the Milky Way in the much darker sky of this area. Many of them were very observant and used green lasers to point out dozens of satellites moving overhead which I thought was very cool. The park also has a large telescope that they brought out later in the night to offer some really spectacular views of a dying star.
