Stargazing In Yosemite
Yosemite is home to some of the best stargazing sites in the world, with many travelling to the area purely to take in the many spectacular views every night. It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, the area’s skies bring some amazing views.
Arguably the best place to stargaze would be Sentinel Dome, which offers an unobstructed view of the stars all year round. August offers some of the best views, however, as you can take in some incredible views of the yearly meteor showers.
However, there’s also Glacier Point. While you’ll need the aid of a telescope, the scenes available from Glacier Point are unrivaled. Many tours are available nightly throughout Glacier Point, so you can be sure you’ll get the best views imaginable with the help of knowledgeable guides.
Some tips for when you’re stargazing include:
- Try not to plan your trip for when the moon is full; the brightness of the moon can affect stars’ visibility.
- Dress for cold weather, as it can be chilly even in the summer.
- Book accommodation as early as possible, as Yosemite is busy year round.
