Area 51 (Check Yahoo Group for Details) (Big Cypress National Preserve in Central South Florida - 26° 8' 30" North :: 80° 52' 40" West)
Area 51 is a primitive viewing site located in one of the darkest places remaining in South Florida. We set up our telescopes at the end of the line on a shell rock road along side a drainage canal. There is no electricity, and there are no facilities of any kind. In fact, the only thing the site has to offer is an unobstructed view of extraordinarily dark skies.
