Welcome to the "Oracle Dark Skies Committee" (ODSC) web site. The ODSC was formed in April 2014 to pursue an "International Dark Sky Park" designation for Oracle State Park. Committee members included local residents of Oracle and Saddlebrooke Ranch, members of the Friends of Oracle State Park, and State Park Rangers. In November 2014, the International Dark-Sky Association announced that Oracle State Park had been designated as an "International Dark Sky Park". The OSP IDSP Nomination Package can be downloaded from the Oracle State Park web site. The Committee held its final meeting in December 2018, having accomplished all that it set out to do for the Park. In mid-2019 discussions among many residents and business owners in the Community of Oracle indicated strong support for pursuing a designation as an IDA "International Dark Sky Community".
