Rated the #1 stargazing destination in America by USA Today! Have you ever seen the Milky Way, along with thousands of stars? In Tonopah, it’s said, you can just by looking up at incredibly dark night skies – no equipment required, just your eyes!
The stars are gorgeous every clear night, but moonless nights are always the best for stargazing. Prepare to have our fantastic night skies take your breath away!
Visit the Clair Blackburn Memorial Stargazing Park – Designed for professional astronomers as well as anyone with an interest in the stars, you can set up a telescope on one of our cement pads or just sit at the picnic tables and look up. “The stars look so close, it’s like you can reach up and grab one!”
Chelynne Campion is a Production/ Sales Assistant for EarthSky. Her family just purchased a telescope, and she's now learning to be a stargazer!
