Stargazing Travel Destinations

In the midst of a travel daydream…

When I was a kid, in the summertime, one of the favorite past-times was watching the stars. It allowed me to stay up much past dark with my grandparents. We had no telescope but loved it just the same. Occasionally I suggested counting the stars, to no avail.

As an adult, I am still fascinated with the night sky and I still don’t own a telescope (one of these days). If I were to combine the night sky with travel (a couple of my favorite things) I might wind up in a few of these locations:


Prague: To see the Astronomical Clock. This clock fascinates me it’s not specifically the night sky (hope to have more to say about the astronomical clock other than I want one).

Chile: Apparently is the place to go for observatories and astro-tourism

Alaska: The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis
