Arches National Park, Utah

Brilliant Stargazing Destinations Around The World

As a photographer, I’ve seen the sky glitter around the world including Tasmania, Australia, where I live. But, Arches National Park was hands down the best place for stargazing as you see the stars with unique and natural rock formations (arches) perfectly framing stars. That adds a whole new layer of visual interest in the spectacle of stargazing. – Nipun Nayyar

Brilliant Stargazing Destinations Around The World

No electricity, no cellphone signal…There I felt like the Earth was covered in a pitch black blanket and someone poked holes all over. The stars, man. I've never felt so tiny and so free at the same time. I was literally looking out into the universe. No clouds or sunlight in the way, just looking out into what's outside. For a minute, I felt like I'd fall off the Earth and float off into the universe. – Jaya Shrii Daguman

Sørensen, Norway

Brilliant Stargazing Destinations Around The World

In the middle of winter, during the civil polar night from the 14th of November till the 29th of January. With the sun well below 6°C of the horizon, the world turns completely black and sky comes alive with stars. The amount of satellites you can see on a clear night is astonishing, 100 per hour wouldn't surprise me. Occasionally auroras will add to the beauty. A short drive just past the seed vault will land you on a little mountain side, away from the light pollution of the town. highly recommendable spot for stargazing and ice cream eating. Just remember the big coats. – Tim Hoff-Lund
