scheduled for August 27-September 2!
The Oil Region Astronomical Society was founded in 1993. The first observatory was located in Two Mile Run County Park, Venango County, PA. In 2014, the ORAS Observatory moved to a new site. Land was donated for an observatory in southeastern Venango County, off Camp Coffman Road -- a location with a darker sky and a better view to the south. The process of building a new observatory and installing bigger and better telescopes is now at an end!
