Southern Utah is known world-wide for its abundance of dark sky areas. In fact, southern Utah has the highest concentration of International Dark Sky Places in the world. International Dark Sky Places use responsible light policies to preserve dark locations. These places can be communities, parks, reserves, or sanctuaries. For all practical purposes, it means that places that have received this distinction are great locations for night photography, astrophotography, and general stargazing. We've listed a few of our favorite locations that are relatively close to us. For more information, give us a call. We'd love to hear from you.
