The Clair Blackburn Memorial Stargazing Park is located at the end of Ray Tennant Drive.  The region is famous for its dark night skies with zero light pollution – arguably the darkest in the country – and the park features cement pads to set up telescopes, and picnic tables. Monthly star parties are offered from June to October, as well as annual night-time photography workshops. To find the park, “turn by the Tonopah High School and follow the pavement until it turns to dirt road – keep on going straight and you will see it right in front of you.” It is open 24 hours.
