Capitol Reef National Park was certified as an International Dark-Sky Park in 2015.
Capitol Reef offers many opportunities to experience near-pristine night skies. The night sky is everyone’s heritage; however, natural darkness is becoming rare.
Dark night skies are essential for ecosystem health and human health. Learn more on Capitol Reef’s Night Sky page.
Capitol Reef National Park is supported by its member organization, Capitol Reef Natural History Association.
