Over 300 people showed up Saturday, June 21, 2014 at Oracle State Park for an evening of music, dancing and stargazing. The event marking the Summer Solstice was a collaboration between the Friends of Oracle State Park and the Oracle Dark Skies Committee. People danced to the music of “Undercover” out of Tucson. Oracle Dark Skies Committee members were available to discuss the work they are doing to have the Oracle State Park designated as a Dark Sky Park. Amateur astronomers had their telescopes set up, pointing up at the Oracle sky to view Mars and Saturn and the Milky Way. Arizona State Parks Director Bryan Martyn was in attendance thanking patrons and noting the great turnout for the event.
