Best Places For Stargazing Plus Volunteer For Wildlife

LATimes.com has this article listing the best places, darkest skies, ideal for stargazing. Bryce Canyon is on the list, along with Grand Canyon and Great Basin national parks. Here are excerpts:

Bryce Canyon welcomes Australian photographer and amateur astronomer Alex Cherney on June 27 during the park's 14th Astronomy Festival June 25-28. Watch the sky by day (solar astronomy) and then take a ranger-led constellation tour of the night sky.

Grand Canyon: The park allocates an entire week for its 24th Star Party from June 21 to 28.

Great Basin National Park near Baker, Nev.: This is one of the darkest spots in America, and the park flaunts its celestial reputation with a team of knowledgeable Dark Rangers.
