Arizona Top Place To Stargaze In The World


Northern Arizona has some of the best views for stargazers across the globe.

…Have you ever wished on a shooting star? If you live in the big city, catching a glimpse of one of mother nature’s most breathtaking shows can be hard to do. …In just a blink it’s gone. And it’s so darn bright even at night. Just a short drive away from Phoenix stargazing is so unique it’s earned national recognition. Three areas of northern Arizona are a few of only fourteen in the world to be certified as dark-sky communities. Flagstaff, Sedona, and most recently the Village of Oak Creek gained the honor through the International Dark Sky Association. These communities have an organized dedication to preserving the night sky. Why is this important? Not only can going dark make for beautiful views, but also it saves energy and is essential for the survival of wildlife that hunt at night. Escape the glow of your phone in the city and go enjoy the bright stars up north. Trust us, you won’t regret it!
