BEST TIPS For Stargazing

A recent study estimates that 80% of people in the United States and 30% worldwide cannot see the Milky Way.

Park rangers offer several tips for stargazers.  Give your eyes time to adjust to the dark. It typically takes about twenty minutes.

Many guests are pleasantly surprised at how many stars they observe when giving their eyes sufficient time to adapt.

Cover your flashlight with red cellophane. Red light generates less light pollution, allows your eyes to better adjust to the dark.

Use your red flashlight for safety when walking between your car and your destination.

If you do not have a telescope, binoculars can sharpen distant stars that appear fuzzy. Most guests typically see plenty of stars without any equipment.
