ANF to host night sky program Friday

If you’ve ever driven on Route 59 past the Allegheny Reservoir at night, then you know just how dark it can be out there.

A program set for Friday night aims to take advantage of that darkness.

The Forest Service will be holding a ranger-led night sky program at Kinzua Beach from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on March 24.

“During our journey across the sky, we will identify stars, constellations, and night sky objects while exploring connections to our past and future,” Forest Ranger Sarah Needs said.

“We recommend participants bring a chair or blanket and prepare for the weather,” Public Affairs Officer Christopher Leeser said. “Participants should meet at the Kinzua Beach parking area, located off of State Route 59, no later than 7:50 p.m.”

Anyone with questions about the program is asked to call the Bradford Ranger District Office at (814) 363-6000.
