Looking for a remote getaway where you can relax, unwind, and kick back to enjoy a clear night sky? There are plenty of opportunities to escape the city lights to take in the stars. Stargazers know that the skies above are always active, with shooting stars, planetary cameos, and the orbiting ISS. Anytime is the perfect time to look up and take in the magic. From the Red Cliffs of Utah to world-famous inlets in Alaska, we’re sharing five remote destinations for stargazing this summer.
