Maine’s Night Sky can’t be beat

When was the last time you stopped and did some stargazing? The lights of the city hide all but the brightest stars and there aren’t many places left on earth where you can truly see the Milky Way spread out above you.

The Moosehead Lake region is one of those few places with the best star views in the northeast. With our vast, remote landscape and little light pollution, the sky is cloaked in darkness and the stars literally drip from the sky.

Take a moonlight snowshoe on a local trail, enjoy s’mores by a campfire, or canoe under the stars and breathe in the peaceful night air.

At all times of the year look for astronomy programming, stargazing opportunities, meteor showers and the northern lights.  Book a stay in Moosehead Lake and be prepared to enjoy the view!
