The 65 Best Night Sky Spots in Southern California for Stargazing

Over the past few months, KCET's Chris Clarke has been detailing the best places to check out the stars in Southern California (and a few in the Eastern Sierra) through a number of guides. We've taken that info and mapped it all here. Use it to find a spot near you (or where you're headed) any time there's a new moon or celestial event.

Our stargazing guides are a work in progress. Please let us know in the comments section below how we can improve this tool for you!
