Star Gazing

Oregon's Night Sky

In big cities sky scrapers light up the night sky, in Oregon only the stars do. Our night sky sparkles with over 10,000 stars to the eye. With only the sounds of nature around you, feel the serenity of the outdoors. On any average night you can see plenty of stars or plan a special night for a meteor shower. 

Is tonight star gazing weather? More information
