Stargazing Locations

In Wyoming, there are seemingly unlimited locations to stargaze. Here are some things to consider when trying to pick a location.

Light Pollution - Light pollution is the first thing you should consider when stargazing. The darker the sky, the better you'll see stars and celestial objects. Using a light pollution map is the best way to determine how to get away from city lights.

Elevation - The higher in elevation you get, the better you'll see the stars. Luckily Wyoming is pretty high for average elevation (about 6,700 ft). To find more specific areas of higher elevation, the use of a topographical map is encouraged. 

Amenities - If being close to things like restrooms and campgrounds are important, consider visiting on of Wyoming's national parks or one of our may excellent state parks. Most of these sites are away from light pollution and have amenities that you need.
