Shenandoah National Park Stargazing

This park is renowned for its scenic views along the iconic Skyline Drive. Some may not think of it as a stargazing nirvana.

Due to its high elevation in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is among the best spots for stargazing on the east coast.

Big Meadows and Skyland Amphitheater are two fantastic stargazing spots within the park.

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

Shenandoah National Park holds an annual Night Sky Festival in August.
