Grand Canyon, Arizona
Looking east across the vast Grand Canyon – layers of red rock carved by the Colorado River – and you will find millions of stars strewn across the sky. In a place with some of the cleanest air quality in the US, it comes as no surprise that this is a go-to destination for sky-watching. Panoramic views of the Milky Way sweep across the dark night sky, undisturbed by lights of the modern world – best seen from the south rim. Get an up-close-and-personal experience at the weekly Star Programs, or just keep it simple and catch a few shooting stars from one of the viewpoints.
