Stars? What stars?

Are you tired of looking up at the sky and seeing nothing but the glow of city lights?
The National Park Service can help with that! Many national parks are the last refuges for dark starry night skies. Park rangers and dedicated volunteers are connecting thousands of visitors, like you with the night sky.

Did you know we have international dark sky preserves? The first park to be designated a Dark Sky Park is Natural Bridges National Monument in southeastern Utah.

The next time you visit a park, think about camping overnight and catching a sky full of stars!
