Goldendale Observatory Receives Dark Sky Status
One of the highlights of the IDA's 22nd Annual General Meeting and the European Symposium is the announcement of new members to the International Dark-Sky Places program. This year was no different. On Saturday evening, at the IDA Board of Directors' meeting, the Dark Sky Park review committee recommended and the Board unanimously approved and granted provisional Dark Sky Park status to Goldendale Observatory State Park (GOSP) in Washington State. The application process has been an year in the making and GOSP is looking forward to completing some required changes and then being granted full status as a Dark Sky Park.
