Zion National Park was certified as an International Dark Sky Park in 2021.
National parks are some of the few places left in the country to see dark skies, and many are working to protect this endangered resource.
Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of dark skies while in the park – on any clear night, head outside and look skyward to see views that rival the daytime scenery that Zion is known for.
Nighttime programming has been a staple at the Park for many years, the area’s dark night skies attracting visitors from around the world.
Zion National Park is supported by its member organization, Zion National Park Forever Project.
