Lennox and Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area

Located in Canada, 23 miles (37 km) north of Napanee, the Lennox and Addington County Dark Sky Viewing Area is the most southerly point in Ontario that offers a night sky experience very similar to what was available more than 100 years ago; but the site has modern amenities, including ample parking and a large concrete pad for camera or telescope setup. With a rating around class 2 on the Bortle Dark Sky Scale, the site opened in 2012 with the support of the well-known amateur astronomer Terence Dickinson. A stargazer shared the following with EarthSky: “The viewing area is open from dusk until dawn, and reservations aren’t required—just come and enjoy. Witness—perhaps for the first time—how the night sky is meant to be seen.” Based on the photos on the website, this place truly does look spectacular!
