The Milky Way Is Extra Visible In Maine Right Now And Here’s The Best Way To Catch It

If there’s a better place than Maine to see the night sky in New England we haven’t seen it! And if you were to tell us it existed, we’d have a few questions about the truth of that statement. That’s because some of the best parts of Maine are so remote with so little light pollution that the night sky puts on a show year-round. Getting outside at night any time of year is gorgeous, but in the spring there are some evenings when the Milky Way can be seen with just the naked eye. During those times, this is how we like to do it!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Curtis Cove offers some lovely day time hiking, too. To learn more about visiting the area, check out this page on alltrails.com.

What are some of your favorite places to visit for optimal stargazing? Let us know in the comments so we can check them out! While we enjoy outdoor adventures at night, daytime is always a bit easier. Another great activity is a local boat cruise. Maine’s Atlantic Puffins are adorable to see on this unique scenic boat tour!
