Ocala Observing

Postby Vince » Tue Feb 10, 2015 11:05 pm

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to provide an update if you aren't already aware. Jose, Paul, and myself have gone to Ocala a couple of times this year and we have found a new site not far from the CFAS Ocala site. The new site is at Big Scrub ATV recreational area. The site features a large parking lot and restrooms on site. It's located about 7 miles from the original site. To get there from US19 and SR40 go west on SR40 about 7 miles and watch for a small sign with a ATV symbol with a left arrow under it. The sign is about the size of a highway mile marker and is forest brown. Turn left at the next road after the sign and about 1/2 mile on the left is the parking lot. ATV riders are there til sunset so respect them and setup near the approach road entrance. The skies are the same as at the original site except that the Orlando light dome and Ocala light dome are mostly below the tree line.

If you have any questions call or text me at 407-595-9293, email at vwhite26@msn.com
