The Grand Canyon is a perfect spot for stargazing. When you’re standing at 7,000 feet elevation with a minimal level of light pollution, you’ll be amazed at the shocking number of stars you can see in the night sky. Given the Grand Canyon’s remote location, and the fact that most of the surrounding area is largely unpopulated, our night skies are remarkably dark and provide excellent viewing conditions. As of 2019, the Grand Canyon has been designated an official Dark Sky Park by the International Dark Skies Association.
