State Park - Utah

Jordanelle Reservoir is a reservoir in Wasatch County, Utah, United States, just north of Heber City. Jordanelle Reservoir is fed and drained primarily by the Provo River, and is impounded by the Jordanelle Dam, an Earthen dam. The construction of the dam resulted in the reroutings of U.S. Route 40 and U.S. Route 189 over the summit of nearby mountains and the submergence of the towns of Keetley and Hailstone.

Jordanelle State Park Protecting natural darkness and starry skies What is Light Pollution? Excessive use of artificial light. Glare – visual discomfort from excessive brightness. Urban sky glow – the brightening of the night sky from artificial light over inhabited areas. Light trespass – light falling where it is not intended, wanted, or needed. Enjoy the Park’s Night Sky “In the ‘shooting’ showers of blazing dust and ice, we have always found beauty.” Paul Bogard, The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light 99 Test your skills and take a journey through our Solar System Geocache. 99 View stars, distant planets, and other celestial objects. 99 Learn about the preservation and stewardship of dark skies. 99 Visit our website for scheduled Dark Sky events such as star parties.

Wildlife at Night An animal’s ability to forage, hunt, migrate, and sleep relies on the rhythm of daylight and natural darkness. True Dark Rural City Can you see the constellation Orion from your home? Set Out to Stargaze ‰‰ Chart your start - Study a star chart before you set out. Choose a celestial object and find out what time it will it be in view. Bring Dark Skies Home ‰‰ Bundle up - Mountain temperatures drop dramatically after sunset. If you would like to take steps to protect your night sky, try following these simple guidelines: ‰‰ Bring out the blankets and pull up a chair Looking straight up can be a pain in the neck. ‰‰ Light only where you need it. ‰‰ Lights out - Switch flashlights off or to red. It takes 15 minutes to develop your night vision to see fainter stars. ‰‰ Shield lights and direct them downward. ‰‰ Sky landmarks - Use the North Star as a landmark to find constellations and objects in the sky. ‰‰ Find it in the sky - Star formations, planets, meteors, and satellites. ‰‰ Light only when you need it. ‰‰ Use the minimum amount of light necessary. ‰‰ Use light bulbs with a color temperature of 3000K or lower. ‰‰ Keep indoor light inside. Close blinds and curtains when lights are on at night.
