Northwest Mural Fest

NORTHWEST MURALFEST IN THE DALLES is finally here
August 24 – 28 in The Dalles Oregon

Once a year, hundreds of Walldogs volunteer and travel on their own time and dimes to gather in one lucky town or city to paint multiple murals and old-fashioned wall advertisements. After being postposed for 2 years because of the pandemic, the Northwest MuralFest is finally here. This five-day mural painting event is to be held in The Dalles, OR, August 24 – 28, 2022. During the festival, 15 new historical murals will be created in the downtown area.

Residents, volunteers and the business community worked on the festival creation in collaboration with the Walldogs, a group of mural painters that has come together in different towns all over the USA since 1993 to paint historic murals.

Oregon’s Magnificent Dark Skies

Oregon’s Magnificent Dark Skies

Oregon has some of the largest expanses of magnificent dark skies in the US. There are few experiences as humbling as staring into the cosmos. But while most of the stars above our cities and towns are obscured by the light we emit, it’s easy enough in Oregon to drive off into darkness to discover their greater beauty.

Amateur astronomers have long gathered to celebrate Oregon’s magnificent skies. Founded in 1987, the annual Oregon Star Party (OSP), attracts up to 1,000 stargazers to the Ochoco National Forest 45 miles east of Prineville. OSP is considered to have the darkest skies of any major star party in the contiguous United States. Update: 2022 Event has been cancelled.

Cloud Cap Inn listed on Dark Sky Finder

Cloud Cap Inn is located at 6,000 feet elevation on the rouged northeast side of Mount Hood, and is listed on Dark Sky Finder. The air is exceptionally clear because of the altitude. There’s a light dome from Portland to the west, but the rest of the sky is very dark, with great views of Hood to the south.
Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast

The John Day Fossil Beds happen to lie under some of the darkest skies in the state, which you can experience from Wilson Ranches Retreat outside of Fossil, Oregon. You could even pull out a lounge chair and gaze right from their lawns and fields.

Meteor Showers, Eclipses, Quasars and More

Dark-sky adventures are about more than stars. If you time it right, you can also witness meteor showers, lunar and solar eclipses, and planetary conjunctions (also called alignments), which occur when two or more planets appear to be very close together in the sky.

Perseids: In 2022, the peak mornings for the Perseid meteor shower, August 11 and 12, will feature meteors under moonlight. The Perseids are the most popular meteor shower as they peak on warm August nights as seen from the northern hemisphere. The Perseids are active from July 14 to September 1In 2021 and will next peak on the Aug 11-12, 2022 night. On this night, the moon will be 100% full. The Perseids tend to be bright, so we expect a good percentage to overcome the moonlit glare, as many as 50 meteors in an hour.

Orionids: The Orionids will next peak on the Oct 20-21, 2022 night. On this night, the moon will be 21% full. The Orionids sometimes produce bright fireballs, which may be able to overcome the moonlit glare

Geminids: The Geminids occur every year from about December 13 – 14. On a dark night, you can often catch 50 or more meteors per hour in a dark, moonless sky. But this year, a waxing gibbous moon will obtrude on the show for much of the night, before setting several hours before dawn.

Ursids: Die-hard meteor watchers in the Northern Hemisphere watch for Ursid meteors about a week after the Geminids. The Ursids will next peak on the Dec 21-22, 2022 night. On this night, the moon will be 3% full. The Ursids meteor shower usually peaks around the winter soltice. At its peak, observers may be able to view as many as 10 meteors in an hour.
