Stargazing

Yosemite National Park, miles from the nearest city lights, has a very dark night sky that makes it a great place to look at the stars.

Bring along a star chart and look for constellations, or look through binoculars at some of our planetary neighbors.

Check Yosemite Guide for the current schedule.
