Look To The Night Sky And Catch The Beautiful Comet Swan Over Idaho, Completely Visible To The Naked Eye

Stargazing opportunities are fantastic here in the Gem State considering we’re home to some of the darkest skies in the country. If you have yet to take advantage of our state’s world-famous dark skies, then consider it high time. After all, Comet Swan is expected to be visible to the naked eye in mid-May and it makes for an excellent excuse to get out there and do some stargazing. This super bright comet was discovered in late March and it may already be visible across especially dark skies, so be sure to check it out soon—before it’s too late!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
