Angle Inlet

A small community of 60 inhabitants, Angle Inlet is a part of the Northwest Angle in Minnesota and an exclave of the United States. Angle Inlet in Minnesota is the only place in the contiguous United States north of the 49th parallel, but travel by road from other parts of Minnesota requires driving through the province of Manitoba, Canada. With a solid class 2 rating in the Bortle Scale, it could be one of the darkest places in the eastern half of the country. A reader of EarthSky who recommended this location has shared the following: “The very best place to stargaze in the United States is Angle Inlet, Minnesota. Difficult to get to, worth the trip.”
