Bryce Canyon National Park was certified as an International Dark-Sky Park in 2019.
Bryce Canyon is the ultimate place to learn about and enjoy the splendor of the night sky. Far from the light pollution of civilization, protected by a special force of park rangers and volunteer astronomers, Bryce Canyon is a sanctuary for natural darkness.
The night sky at Bryce is so dark we can see thousands of stars on a moonless night! Here the Milky Way extends from horizon to horizon like a vast silver rainbow. Planets glow brightly in the sky and starlight illuminates the night.
Bryce Canyon National Park is supported by its member organization, Bryce Canyon Natural History Association.
