Although you may see twinkling stars in your corner of the world, chances are you cannot see the starry night sky to its full capacity. That’s because statistics show that almost two-thirds of the world cannot see the Milky Way, mostly because modern day cities and towns are very well-lit. But there are places in the world where you can look up and see the true beauty of stars in the sky. If you’re chasing the perfect intergalactic view, check out this list of the 9 best places in the world to go stargazing.
Pic du Midi, France
With cable cars ascending to the heightened peaks, Pic du Midi is a great place to stargaze and see beautiful views of the Pyrenees mountains. Travelers can see amazing stars on their own, and take advantage of guided stargazing tours if they choose.
Muana Kea, Hawaii
Travelers who can stand the high elevation are in for a real treat at night when visiting the breathtaking mountain top of Muana Kea. Standing at a stunning 4200 m. altitude, scientists can use the thirteen scattered telescopes atop the mountain to view the starry universe.
