Flagstaff Earns Recognition For Stellar Stargazing

Northern Arizona residents know firsthand how gorgeous the vast horizon and stunning skies can be. And now, the region’s largest city has been recognized yet again for their stellar stargazing standards.

Flagstaff made the cut for an article published on Livability.com titled “Stellar Cities: 6 Places in the US That Take Stargazing Seriously.” The story, purposely posted during International Dark Skies Week (April 15 – 21), acknowledged American cities that provide a highly sought-after amenity: amazing stargazing.

“The Arizona city, which is home to Lowell Observatory and the U.S. Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station, has a long history of defending its darkness,” the article reads. “It enacted the world’s first outdoor lighting ordinance in 1958, according to the International Dark-Sky Association.”
