Stargazing at Cape Lookout

The dark skies of Cape Lookout National Seashore are some of the darkest along the east coast. It is one of the few places where you can see the Milky Way with your natural eye, making it an ideal location for stargazing. In 2021, Cape Lookout was certified as an International Dark Sky Park. Learn more about stargazing, the night sky, and astronomy events at Cape Lookout below.
