Signal Hill National Historic Site

Signal Hill National Historic Site overlooks the city of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. This hill – at the most easterly point in North America – is where Marconi received the first transatlantic signal in 1901. Signal Hill is technically open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but those scheduled hours only include the facilities on the site. The grounds and the trails – the places where you can stargaze – are open 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. An EarthSky friend wrote, “It is a fantastic place to stargaze, which has minimal glare from city lights.”
