This Is The Most Enchanting Spot For Star Gazing In Ontario

One of the best ways to spend a summer night is laying down on the grass and stargazing. The problem is here in Ontario, there is so much light pollution in the cities, that you need to escape to the countryside to get a better view of the stars.

This summer, if you are looking for the ultimate place to go stargazing in Ontario, make sure to visit the Lennox & Addington County Dark Sky Viewing Area. Located 2.5 hours from Toronto and 1 hour and 50 minutes from Ottawa, the site will give you a spectacular view of the stars.

The Dark Sky Viewing Area opened in 2012, and now has thousands of visitors each year who come to stargaze. With so much of Canada's population living in urban areas, The Dark Sky Viewing Area is the perfect spot to view the stars and moon.

The view is so good at The Dark Sky Viewing Area that view of the night sky is said to be nearly identical to how well you could see the stars 100 years ago! While visiting The Dark Sky Viewing Area make sure to bring a camera, as you can get extraordinary photographs of constellations or meteor showers.

At the Dark Sky Viewing Area, they also host monthly events which are perfect for novice stargazers. From May to September there are several events where Joe Gilker from Dark Arts Astrophotography will be available to give a laser-guided tour of the sky. Over the 90 minute event, he will point out the various constellations. There also will be a telescope available for you to look through too so you can get a better view of the sky.

The Lennox & Addington County Dark Sky Viewing Area is at 7980 County Road 41 and is open every day from dusk till dawn. For more information visit the website.
