Come view the night sky at Capulin Volcano! As a Gold Tier International Dark Sky Place, thousands of stars are visible on clear nights here.

Located in the oversized vehicle parking area near the visitor center, the night sky viewing area is open to visitors 24/7 for night sky viewing. We do ask that visitors not camp overnight here, build any type of fire, play loud music, and clean up after themselves.
